How to get from Barajas to the city centre
Madrid-Barajas Airport is very well-connected to the city by that has various means of transport, such as public taxis, and there are 4 taxi stations in the airport, but they face a very high demand from people needing them to reach the capital. The in-aiport taxis are in high demand and charge a premium, which is why it is better if you use our TaxiLeader private hire service.
City buses link the capital to its airport, such as the Exprés Line, Line 101 and Line 200. There is also the metro network, which is the fastest means of public transport. Busses connect Terminal 2 to the centre via the pink line number 8. However, neither the metro, nor the buses carry you directly to your accommodation in which you chose to stay. In fact, when choosing a means of public transport, you have to consider how many times you will need to change and how you will get your luggage from the airport to your hotel.
