Metro


Metro

Depending on how much you plan on using the Metro or buses within the city, you may want to consider buying a multi-trip pass. Generally it is a good idea to purchase the 10 trip pass if you are only visiting for a short period of time. The price of the 10 trip pass is 5.65 euros. If you are living in Madrid or are staying for more than a month you should consider buying a month pass. The unlimited month pass or "Abono de Transportes" is a good idea if you take the metro/bus at least twice a day. There are different zones of travel the further you go beyond the city center, but the main ZONE A pass will cost 34.55 euros.
If you decide to buy the month pass will you need a few things. First you will need a small photo of yourself. You can get your picture taken in the automatic photo booths that are located in many metro stations. They charge a couple of euros. Next you will need to take your photos to a government-run tobacco shop. These shops are called "estancos". There you need to purchase a permanent plastic card that contains your photo, personal details and eventually your month pass. They will ask you which zone you want and then charge you 1.30 euros for the plastic case. Now, keep in mind that not all tobacco shops sell metro passes, so don't be suprised if they don't have them. Usually if they sell the plastic case with your picture then they will also sell you the actual Ticket (Abono deTransportes) If they don't, then you can always try the actual metro station ticket window, or automatic Abono machines.

If this all sounds confusing...well it is. Just remember your checklist:
1) Photo (machine located in metro, 2 euros)
2) Orange plastic case thing (Tobacco shop, 1.30 euros)
3) Abono Ticket (Tobacco shop, merto ticket window, machine, 34.55 eur Zone A)
