Metro

If you want to enlarge the photo make a click on it
If you ever come to Madrid (which I strongly recommend you!) there is a fast way to reach your destination, METRO. It's our subway or underground and connects almost any part of the city without traffic jam! (You can check out the Metro map here.)
The subway starts at 6.00 am and stops at 2.00 am everyday. It would be a great idea to keep it open 24h in weekend, at least Friday and Saturday for young people (we have special night buses instead but it take a long time to get back home so people just take their cars).
A single ticket costs 1 euro and a ten-journey ticket (Metrobús) is 6.40 euro and it can be also used on Madrid's buses.
Have a great weekend!

Si alguna vez visitaís Madrid (merece la pena, de verdad) hay una forma rápida de llegar a cualquier rincón de la ciudad y sin atascos, el METRO (puedes consultar el plano aquí).
Abre todos los días de 6 de la mañana a 2 de la madrugada. Sería una gran idea dejarlo abierto las 24 h durante los fines de semana para evitar que la gente saque el coche en sus noches de juerga (tenemos autobuses nocturnos, pero tardan un siglo en llevarte a casa, y Taxis pero no son aptos para todos los bolsilllos).
Un ticket te cuesta 1 euro y un metrobús de 10 viajes 6.40, y además también te sirve para los autobuses.
¡Pasad un buen finde!

I am not sure I could ever live in such a large city. I am living close to countryside of farms and animals.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Our country (USA) has some subways in large cities, but generally our surface transportation is woefully inadequate elsewhere. It stems from our love affair with cars.

There it is! That special colour warmth again. It's rather nice to see how Madrid has adapted the London Transport colours and style in it's own way. It fits very well.

Id love to visit Madrid. Here in Mumbai, they have plans for metro but I think that'll take time.

Thanks for the great information. I love subway maps. And I love reading subway maps of other cities. Thanks for the link.

In NYC, the subway runs 24 hours, cost $2 per ride but I pay $76 per month for the unlimited rides. It can be used for the city buses too. I use the subway almost every day.

I do love to ride the metro in cities that are foreign to me. I would use the metro in Madrid to go all over the city.

Hola, Felices vacaciones en la tierra del Quijote, ojala puedas mostrarnos fotos del lugar. Por tu excelente foto se puede uno imaginar que cuentan con buena señalizacion en las calles y seria dificil perderse. Aca en MC el servicio del Metro es razonablemente bueno y muy barato, aprox. $ 0,20 de dolar. Saludos!

kala, it's normally safe. But sometimes there's evil people everywhere, you know.

Carraol, me voy esta tarde! Pues sí que el metro es barato por allí! 0.20 $ deben ser pocos centimos de euro... Lo de la señalización.. bueno, no todo lo que reluce es oro, como quien dice ;) Un saludo!
