Madrid Public Transportation Card and Multi Card


Transportation Card

BU Madrid will take care of the application process for the Transportation Card.

All students will receive their cards upon arrival if they have uploaded on time a copy of the first page of the passport (the one with your name, date of birth and passport number information) on the BU Online Application link and have provided to the Madrid staff, if they have been requested, a passport-style photograph with white background.

Important: If you do not submit your documentation on time, you will have to apply for your card through the Consorcio de transportes Link.

Tarjeta TrasporteThe Transportation Card is a great way to reduce transportation cost while in Madrid!  The PTC permits users to obtain the “30-Day Pass”, which allows unlimited use (for 30 days) of public transportation throughout the Comunidad de Madrid (metro, bus, and the Cercanías train system)  for only 20 euros if you are under 26.

From January 1 to December 31 2024, the price for the 30-day youth pass will be 8 euros.

This card also grants you free entrance to the Reina Sofia, Prado, and Thyssen museums.

Important: The card is personal and non-transferable. No other person may use it. If you lend it to someone else, authorities will remove your card and fine you.
