Long-distance bus to Madrid-Barajas Airport; all necessary information to travel from Alcalá de Henares: route, stops, timetable, maps and prizes.
Since February 2013, there is a service offered linking Alcalá de Henares with Madrid-Barajas Airport. Nowadays, Alcalá provides a direct long-distance bus service to the Airport so it is not necessary anymore to catch a taxi to the airport, or to turn aside to the center of Madrid (by train or bus) in order to be able to go on the Metro or network of city buses to get to the airport.
The first stop of this bus 824 is placed in Vía Complutense, on the corner of C/Ribera (Bankia branch office), and in front of C/Brihuega (see the map below). An additional stop is situated in Vía Complutense (near Workers’ Commissions), another two at Avenida del Ejército and one more at M-300 highway (Bielsa). Besides, from Monday to Friday, there are some departures from University Campus, pulling up at Príncipe de Asturias Hospital. It will also allow the connection with metro line 8.
The service works at 40 minutes intervals, from Monday to Friday—working days—, from 6:30 to 22:00 hours. Weekends and holidays, the interval is extended to an hour between 7:30 and 22:30 hours.
Ticket price is 3,60€.
