The metro is amazing form of transport only takes matter of minutes to get to any locations... There is staff at every ticket machine to help you... Be sure to keep your train ticket because you can top them up again :)

I downloaded the Madrid metro map and used the route planner. This was very useful and it matched perfectly with the best route options. The stations are well marked so you will be able to tell where you are going and they are immaculately kept.

Very happy to have had this mode of transport in such as busy city.

This is faster than any other public transit in the city. A must to get around between all the attractions.

When we first tried to buy a ticket from the kiosk at the Gran Via station, we were totally lost. A customer service rep came over and just popped at a bunch of screens and handed us the card with the 2-rides we requested on it. The problem with that is...we didn't learn how to use the kiosk!
So, the next time we had to use it, here's how we managed to get thru it to buy a total of 2-rides in Zone A on one card. Look for the Union Jack next to other flags in the upper left hand corner.
Pick "Acquire Card".
Up next choose "1 viaje" (yes, I know you want 2, but that will come) and hit the green Accept button.
Next hit Accept for the Zone A designation.
After that you will be asked to choose the last station on your trip. We were headed to Moncloa, so we chose "M" and picked "Moncloa".
Then it will ask you for how many rides you wanted on the card. There were 2-of us, so hit the "Plus" button to get you to 2. Hit accept.
It will tell you how much money to enter. Do that and you'll get your card and any change.
If more than one person is using the card...have one person get in front and beep the card on the lit disk on the turnstile. Let that person go thru and then the 2nd person repeats and goes thru.
I would make sure to research which Lineas and transfers you may need to make *before* you head off on your first few trips on the Metro!
Otherwise, safe riding and even tho we didn't see anyone shady during our trips, keep your wits about you and your valuables safely stowed away with your hand over it.
It's very easy to use the system once you get the hang of it.
