An easy to use system which was safe and clean with mostly new trains. good air conditioning on the trains which is a must. Modernisation is in progress so a few stations are closed in August 2018.

On par with other European metro systems. Plenty of ticket machines. Plenty of lines to get around the city.

So convenient and easy to use. Needed help to buy tickets the first time, but easy to figure out afterwards! So helpful getting to and from the airport, much cheaper than a taxi.

Good, clear and easy system for tourist to travel wherever ones want. Fast and good communicated, during our stay in August it wasn't crowded at all.

Buy the card, load multiple rides, pick up a free map and start your journeys. Everywhere I went every direction was well labeled and easy to follow, even for non-Spanish speakers.

Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where
many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where
the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and
people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main
thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is
Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables
serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture
of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses

Normally any of the metros have the maps and they're free. Or go online and look up madrid metro. There's also a good app I use every day. MadridMBC which has the Metro, Bus and Cercanias train times and maps on.
