I did this a few years ago but my memory is hazy. We're flying into Madrid airport in June and then walking a week or more from Burgos. Can anyone tell me the name and location of the bus station we need in central Madrid to catch a bus to Burgos? And then I shall probably do battle with the alsa website again! :?

Thanks, Simon

The bus to Burgos leaves from the Avenida de America bus station, on ALSA. There are 12 or 13 a day, so I doubt you'd need to buy a ticket in advance unless it's a holiday or something.

If you are planning to take public transportation from the airport to the Avda. de America station, I personally think the red bus #204 is much easier than the metro. The bus may take a little longer, but it leaves from in front of the airport terminal and drops you off right at the bus station, with just a few stops in between. http://www.aena.es/csee/Satellite?Langu ... me=subHome

By metro it's about a half hour ride with one change of line.

buen camino, Laurie

If you do decide to take the Metro it stops directly under the bus station. The first level up is for local buses the upper level is the long distance bus station.
