Your Transportation Card

The Transport Card (TTP) allows you to travel by metro, bus and train everywhere in Madrid (and also to Toledo).

You will have to recharge it every 30 days.

Cards can be charged at the metro and train stations and also at the “Estancos” (stores where stamps and cigarette-related products are sold).

We strongly suggest that you make an online appointment before arrival (30 days in advance) to obtain it in person on the day of your appointment in Madrid.

If you are under 26 years-old, the cost will be 20€ every time you recharge it (this is the cost for all areas); if you are older, it will cost 63,70€. B1 is the area for Getafe and Leganés.
