Madrid to Toledo by Bus

Toledo is an easy day trip from Madrid which you can do on your own by taking the efficient public transportation.

Buses leave from Plaza Eliptica which is on Line 6 of the Metro subway (didn't I mention that public transportation in Spain is one of the best!).

Plaza Eliptica is made up of different levels and I navigated my way to the correct platform with help from digital screens like these:

Almost all signages in Spain are in Spanish or Catalan. Here it means that Route 402 is the direct bus to Toledo that leaves from Platform 7. 



When I reached Platform 7 ...



... the bus was about to leave and I didn't have a ticket!




The bus driver pointed to the ticket machine beside the platform ...




... where I bought a return ticket to Toledo for 8.88 Euros: 




Then I checked the screen and the next bus was at 11.30am:

Not too bad since I only had to wait for another 20 minutes for the next bus.


Soon I was on my way to Toledo which took about 45 minutes because traffic was clear, yeah !

I like to book the bus ticket online.
It can check the price and bus schedule for Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
I normally will buy the bus ticket online from Penang to Pahang, Penang to Negeri Sembilan, Penang to Kuala Lumpur (KL), Penang to Selangor, Penang to Malacca (Melaka), Penang to Thailand, or Penang to Genting.haha^^
I also check the bus ticket price from Butterworth to Kedah, Butterworth to Kelantan, Butterworth to Perlis, Butterworth to Perak, Butterworth to Johor, and Butterworth to Singapore (Sg).^^
Im from Sungai Nibong.^^
