Madrid transit authorities have established a special public transport plan on the occasion of the final of the Champions League, to be held next Saturday, June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium between London Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.
In addition, from May 30 and until June 2 the ‘Champions Festival’ will be held, a set of simultaneous events that will take place in emblematic areas of the center of Madrid, such as Puerta del Sol, Callao and Plaza Mayor, and Postas and Mayor streets.
Metro de Madrid will increase the frequency of lines 2, 5, 7 and 8 during those days, mainly in the afternoon. On Thursday, line 2 will be reinforced from 10 pm until closing time. On Friday, May 31, the reinforcement will be extended to line 8 (from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm), to facilitate travel from the airport.
On Sunday, June 2, the reinforcement of line 8 will remain between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm to facilitate access to the airport.
The trip to the city center, airport terminals, railway stations or Wanda Metropolitano stadium takes just 45 minutes on average in Metro. Visitors can reach quickly and comfortably different points of interest of the city by metro or suburban rail, using a nearby station.
We also recommend to acquire the Tourist Transport Card to facilitate travel around the city. It can be obtained at the Airport terminals as well as at the ticket sales machines of any Metro station. The fares and modalities can be consulted on the web.
