Getting around Madrid

Central Madrid is a great place to tour on foot, but like all capital cities it is quite large, so if you want to go further afield use the public transport. The best value ticket is called the "METROBUS" which gives you 10 one way trips on either the subway/underground or public buses.
Public transport in Madrid is both clean and safe, however it shuts down around midnight (apart from a few night buses) so any travel after that is either on foot or in a taxi.
You can easily get to our TEFL course Madrid Spain programme training centre by either Metro or bus.
