estacion-avenida-de-america

The second most important Madrid bus station is Avenida de América, very well connected with the Metro and the airport.

 

About Estación Avenida de América

This bus station mainly serves north and northeast destinations and almost all the routes operating from Avenida de América belong to Alsa (the exception being a couple of routes to Pamplona and Logroño).

Alsa is the most important bus company in Spain. It operates domestic and international routes. Its buses depart from Madrid’s two most important bus stations (Avenida de América and Estación Sur) and from Barajas airport Terminal 4 (T4).

 

Bus tickets can be purchased at the Alsa website. Alternatively, you can use Movelia, a very useful tool including most of the smaller bus companies.

 

How To Get There

Estación Avenida de América is in the northeast of Madrid. The exact address is c/ Avenida de América, 9.

The bus station is also an intercambiador de transporte, or public transportation hub. It includes the Metro, city buses, interurban buses, interregional buses and international buses.

There is a Metro station inside the premises, Avenida de América, with access to lines 4 (brown), 6 (grey), 7 (orange) and 9 (purple).

Unfortunately, there are no Metro direct routes from Atocha, Chamartín or Barajas airport. Keep in mind that if you have lots of luggage you may have to change between lines once or twice.

Alternatively, from Barajas airport, you can catch bus line 200, linking Terminals 1, 2 and 4 (T1, T2 and T4) with the bus station.

The Estación Avenida de América does not have a Cercanías train station. Would you like to know how to purchase a Cercanías train ticket?

Obviously, you can also get there by bus (12, 29, 52, 72, 73, 114, 15, 122, 200, C1, C2, N2, N4) and taxi.
