Getting GAPS

The Telecommunication Engineering School (ETSIT), is part of "Ciudad Universitaria", a university campus in the west part of Madrid.

 

Bus

Bus line F comes from "Cuatro Caminos" and bus line 82 comes from "Moncloa". Both stop at ETSIT's entrance when coming from Cuatro Caminos or Moncloa. However, to take the bus in the return direction you must go to a different bus stop.

 

Underground

metro

The underground station "Ciudad Universitaria"line 6, is the closest to ETSIT (1 km away approximately). Cuatro Caminos and Moncloa also have stations in the same line. See the complete map of underground lines. Very close to the "Ciudad Universitaria" station you can connect with bus lines 82,G or U, which stop at ETSIT's entrance.

In Madrid, the underground is usually called "El Metro". Metro tickets and bus tickets cost 1 € each. At underground stations you can buy a combined ticket called "metrobus" that is valid for ten trips (underground or bus) and costs 6,70 €. The Metro is closed at nights from 2 am to 6 am.

It can be reached also by metro with the underground station "Aeropuerto T4"(line 8). Bus line 204 goes from terminal T4 to "Avenida de América". Free shuttle buses link all four terminals.

The metro ticket when going or coming from the airport terminals cost 2€. If you go to the airport from the city, you should buy a special metro ticket for the airport (2€) instead of the normal one (1€).
