Avenida America Bus Station forms part of a huge intermodal transport hub (Intercambiador Avenida América) that integrates urban buses, intercity buses and four metro lines. The station is organized vertically in four levels: the first two levels are intended for buses, while the third and fourth levels were built for metro trains.
Avenida America Station, inaugurated in 1979, serves approximately 200,000 people a day, making it one of the busiest stations across Europe. The bus terminal was built in 2000 to relieve the stations of Mendez Alvaro an Moncloa.
How to get to the city center?
Avenida América Bus Station is located approximately 5 kilometers away from the city center. However, the station is conveniently connected through more than 10 bus lines and metro trains.
Despite having four metro lines (4, 6, 7 and 9), none of them connect directly the station with the old town. So you will have to change the line few times, which involves some discomfort. We recommend taking line 9 until Principe Vergara and then changing to line 2, which connects with Puerta del Sol (approximate duration: 25 minutes).
Maybe it is best option. Take the bus line 52 which connects directly Avenida America Station with Plaza Canalejas (5 minute walk from Puerta del Sol). Approximate duration 30-35 minutes.
If you prefer taking a taxi don’t worry, there is a taxi spot right outside the station. The price of a ride from Avenida America Station to the city center costs about 10-15€ and take about 15-20 minutes. Atenttion! There is no extra charge for luggage.
