I lucked out on getting my Abono Card for the Metro. I got in and out in less than 10 minutes. Plus, you will leave with your card in hand. All I needed to bring was my US Passport, address, phone #, and money for the transport card and 1st month’s payment. They will take your picture there.
Breakdown of Cost
- €5 for the transport card.
- €35 (joven) or €54,60 (normal)
If you live around Sol, go to the Sol Metro stop and get on Line 3. Get off at at the Legazpi stop. Put this address in your Google Maps App: Paseo de las Delicias, 150 28045 Madrid
