The Cercanias in Madrid is the city’s commuter rail network and covers local trains in and around the city. Ticket prices for the network depends on how many zones your journey includes.

Cercanias connections

The network works alongside Madrid’s Metro system to enable residents and visitors to travel around the city with ease. Madrid Atocha Station is well-connected to the network with all but one of its lines stopping at the capital’s biggest train station. The C1 line goes to Madrid Airport’s Terminal 4 from both Madrid Atocha & Chamartin railway stations.
