Transportation to Madrid City Center from Airport

The Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport, also referred to as Madrid-Barajas Airport, is located 12 km from Madrid’s city center. There are a variety of transportation alternatives to get to the city center from the airport including the metro, trains, buses, taxis, or rental cars.

Metro

Madrid’s metro system is a modern, clean, and quick transportation alternative to get to the city center from the airport. There are two metro stations at the airport that provide convenient transportation to the city’s metro system. There is a station located in Terminal 2, which is accessible from the other terminals using the airport’s inter-terminal transportation system. The other station is located in Terminal 4. Metro Line 8 runs through both stations. Departing from Terminal 4, Metro Line 8 runs to the following lines respectively, Barajas, Airport T1-T2-T3, Campo de las Naciones, Mar de Cristal, Pinar del Rey, Colombia, all the way to the Nuevos Ministerios Station in only 12 minutes. At the Nuevos Ministerios Station you can transfer to Metro Line 10 and Metro Line 6, depending on your destination in the city. You can also transfer to Line 4 at the Mar de Cristal Station.  

We recommend taking a look at the Madrid Metro System online beforehand, or getting a map at the airport, to find out which metro line you should take depending on your final destination in the city. The metro is an affordable and convenient method of transportation to get to the city center. However, you might have to transfer at multiple locations depending on your final destination. So if you have a lot of luggage then taking the metro can be a bit troublesome. The Madrid metro system runs from 6 am to 2 am. Metro Line 8 operates every 5 minutes. If you purchase a Madrid Tourist Travel Pass then you will be paying less for public transportation and won’t have to deal with purchasing separate tickets for each ride. These cards are valid on the metro, buses, and trains.  

Train

Another convenient method of transportation to get to the city center from the airport is by using the RENFE trains. There is a station located in Terminal 4, which is accessible from the other terminals using the airport’s inter-terminal transportation system. From this station you can get to stops in the city like Chamartin, Nuevos Ministerios, Atocha, and Principe Pio by taking the C1 trains. The total train ride from the airport station to Chamartin Station takes 11 minutes and the total train ride from the airport station to Principe Pio Station takes 38 minutes. The C1 trains operate from 5:15 am to 12:15 am and run every 30 minutes.

Bus

Buses are another form of transportation to get to the city center and its surrounding areas from the airport. Airport Express buses provide transportation along Plaza Cibeles to the city’s main railway station, Atocha Station. This station is also quite close to the city’s main bus stop. These buses operate 24 hours a day and run every 15 minutes during the day and every 35 minutes at night. These yellow buses also let off passengers at the junction of O’Donnell and Doctor Esquerdo and stops along Plaza de Cibeles before arriving at Atocha Station. The ride from the airport to the last stop takes about 40 minutes under normal traffic conditions. In addition, there are regular public bus services that provide transportation to various locations in the city. Bus line 200 runs from each terminal to the Avenida de America Station, where you can connect to other major bus routes. Bus line 200 operates from 5 am to 11:30 pm and runs every 12 to 15 minutes during rush hour.

Taxi

Another transportation alternative to get to the city center from the airport is by taxi. Taxis are easily accessible outside of the arrivals hall. Since the airport is located in such close proximity to the city center, only 13 km away, taking a taxi is a comfortable option. Official taxicabs in Madrid are colored white with a red stripe on them. Taxis operate using a taximeter but also use maximum and minimum flat rate fares. For example, if you are traveling 10 km away then the minimum fare will be 20 euros. But if you are traveling to specific sections in the city then your maximum fare will be 30 euros. These prices can vary over time and taxi fares are higher over the weekend, during public holidays, and at night between 9 pm and 6 am. For more detailed information on taxi fares and services please take a look at Madrid-Barajas Airport’s website.  

Rental Car

Renting a car is another alternative to get to the city center from the airport, especially if you’re planning on exploring areas surrounding the city. However, if you plan on only staying in the city then keep in mind that parking and traffic can be a problem. It might not be worth renting a car considering the fact that public transportation is so convenient. Regardless, there are various rental car companies that have offices at the airport, such as Sixt, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, Enterprise and ATESA. Rental car offices can be found in the arrivals hall of terminals 1 and 4.
