Madrid has a new transport service connecting the city centre and Barajas airport. The new line runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - great news for all those travellers who need to reach or get back from the airport between 1:30 and 6:00 in the morning.
The bus, named Airport Express, completes the journey in approximately 40 minutes. Buses run once every 15 minutes during the day, and every 35 minutes at night. Tickets cost 5 euros each, and are purchased on the bus itself.
Since this is an express service, there are only three stops on the route: O'Donnell at the junction with Doctor Esquerdo, Plaza de Cibeles (nerve centre of the EMT night buses, known as the búhos) and Atocha station (daytime timetable only, between 6 am and 11.30pm). The bus stops at airport terminals T1, T2 and T4, where the end of the line is located.
This special bus line is easy to identify thanks to its distinctive yellow colour scheme. Each bus has room for 88 passengers and features modern luggage storage facilities.
