Hello Volunteers! Metro line 8 (the pink one, the one that goes to and from Barajas, the Madrid airport) will be closed between January 26 and April 18.
We wanted to let you know so that you can make alternative plans when coming to volunteer! Your options are:
Option #1: Taxi. You can take a cab from the airport into downtown Madrid for a flat rate of 30€. Read all about it here.
Option #2: Bus. The Airport Express Shuttle runs 24 hours a day and costs 5€/person. The trip takes around 40 minutes and it departs from Terminals 1, 2 and 4. Read all about it here.
Option #3: Uber. The company is offering a discounted flat fare to go to and from central Madrid to the Barajas Airport between January 25 and February 8 for 15€. When ordering the Uber car on your phone in the Uber app, enter the promotional code madridairport and select to go to the airport. The app will then ask you to chose the option UberAIRPORT. Although it is in Spanish, you can read more about it here.
Thank you very much and see you soon!
