The Madrid Metro (Metro de Madrid) is a metro system serving the city of Madrid, capital of Spain. The system is the sixth longest metro in the world though Madrid is approximately the fiftieth most populous metropolitan area in the world. Its fast growth in the last 20 years has also put it among the fastest growing networks in the world, rivalling many Asian metros such as the Shanghai Metro, Guangzhou Metro, Beijing Subway or the Delhi Metro. Unlike normal Spanish road and rail traffic, Madrid Metro trains use left-hand running on all lines due to historical reasons. The Madrid Metro operates every day from 6 am until 1:30 am.

Madrid Metro Line 1

Madrid Metro LineLine 1 of the Madrid Metro was opened on 17 September 1919 between Cuatro Caminos and Sol. It was extended from Sol to Atocha in 1921, Atocha to Puente de Vallecas in 1923, Cuatro Caminos to Tetuán in 1929, Tetuán to Plaza De Castilla in 1961 and Puente de Vallecas to Portazgo in 1962.

Between 1964 and 1966, station platforms were lengthened in order to allow 6-car train compositions, due to heavy increasing passenger flow. Chamberí station had to be closed because it didn't allow platform lengthening due to its sharp curve and its closeness to Iglesia station.

In recent years, the line has been extended both north and south. On 1 April 1994, it was extended from Portazgo to Miguel Hernández and on 4 March 1999 from Miguel Hernández to Congosto.

In 2007, the line was extended to Pinar de Chamartin in two stages. First, on 30 March 2007, the line was extended from Plaza de Castilla to Chamartin, which provides interchange with Line 10 and RENFE services. The new metro complex has line 1 and in the future, line 11 on the lower level and line 10 on the upper level. On 11 April 2007 the extension to Pinar daae Chamartin was completed. Here, there is interchange available to Line 4. There are two side platforms for arrivals and an island platform for departures. In May 2007, interchange to Metro Ligero 1 was available, which terminates one level higher.

On 16 May 2007, the line was extended south from Congosto to Valdecarros with two intermediate stations.

Since summer 2007 the line uses class 2000B stock. Chamberí station, after more than 40 years of abandonment, was refurbished and open in 2008 as an exhibition place to show how Metro stations were when opened in 1919.

Madrid Metro Line 2

Line 2 of the Madrid Metro was opened on 11 June 1924 between Sol and Ventas. It was later extended fron Sol to Quevedo on 27 December 1925 and from Quevedo to Cuatro Caminos on 1 September 1929. In 1932, a branch from Goya to Diego de León was added. This branch was transferred to Line 4 in 1958. In 1964 the line was extended from Ventas to Ciudad Lineal, though it was really the first part of Line 5, transferred to the latter in 1970. Later, Canal Station was added between Quevedo and Cuatro Caminos to provide interchange with the extended line 7 on 16 October 1998. Finally, on 16 February 2007 the line was extended from Ventas to La Elipa, and in the future this station will provide interchange with Line 11, but no date has been set for this. Line 2 uses class 2000A, but from summer 2007 the line uses some class 3400 trains. An eastern extension from La Elipa to Las Rosas has been approved, scheduled for on 16 March 2011.

Madrid Metro Line 3

Line 3 of the Madrid Metro was opened in August 1936 between Sol and Embajadores, a few days before the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. In 1941 it was extended from Sol to Argüelles, in 1949 from Embajadores to Delicias, in 1951 from Delicias to Legazpi, in 1963 from Argüelles to Moncloa, and in 2007 from Legazpi to Villaverde Alto. In 2006, the platforms were lengthened to 90M for the use of 6 car trains of class 3000. During this process, all of the stations were modernised and rebuilt, thus giving the original section of Line 3 a brand new look. Moncloa Station was completely rebuilt next to the Line 6 Station to give easy access. On 21 April 2007, the line was extended from Legazpi to Villaverde Alto, doubling its length. This was the first extension of the line since 1951. In the future, there should be further extensions on both ends of the line. In the north the line should be extended to Nuevos Ministerios where transfer to lines 6,8 and 10 is available. The line will stop at Cuatro Caminos (Transfer with lines 1,2 and 6 available) and Islas Filipinas (Transfer with line 7 available). In the south the line will be extended to El Casar, where it will meet Line 12 (metrosur) and C3 Cercanías station.

Madrid Metro Line 4

Line 4 of the Madrid Metro was opened on 23 March 1944 between Goya and Argüelles. In 1958, the line took up a branch of line 2 from Goya to Diego de León, which originally opened on 17 September 1932. In the 1970s, the line was extended in two stages: from Diego de León to Alfonso XII (1973) and from Alfonso XIII to Esperanza (1979). On 1 April 1998, the line was extended from Esperanza to Mar de Cristal, to provide interchange with the new Line 8. Later that year on 15 December, the line was extended to Parque de Santa María. On 11 April 2007, an extension from Parque de Santa María to Pinar de Chamartin opened. At Pinar de Chamartin, interchange with Line 1 can be made and from spring 2007, interchange with Metro Ligero 1 (ML1) is available too. At Pinar de Chamartin, an island platform is used for departures, and a side platform for arrivals. Line 4 has used four-car trains of class 3400 since 2007.

Madrid Metro Line 5

Line 5 of the Madrid Metro originally opened between Callao and Carabanchel on 5 June 1968, the latter sharing station platforms with then called Line S (for Suburbano) On 2 March 1970, the line was extended from Callao to Ciudad Lineal, however the section between Ventas and Ciudad Lineal was opened as part of line 2 in 1964. In 1976, section of Line S Carabanchel - Aluche was transferred to the line in order to provide easier transfer to downtown to new railroad line to Alcorcón and Móstoles, now part of Cercanías C-5 line. On 28 May 1980 the line was extended from Ciudad Lineal to Canillejas. On the 27 October 1999, Eugenia de Montijo station was added between Aluche and Carabanchel. The station is on the tunnel mouth of the line and is therefore overground. The mostly overground section between Aluche and Casa de Campo was handed over to Line 5 after Line 10 was extended south from Casa de Campo on 22 May 2002. On 24 November 2006, a two stop extension from Canillejas to Alameda de Osuna was opened. A unique feature of Line 5 is that it carries the only above ground island platform at Aluche, and it is the only station were the metro is above the Cercanías, which is normally the other way round. In the future, Line 5 is projected to be extended one stop north from Alameda de Osuna to Corralejos, where it will meet Line 8, however a new station will have to be built here to connect with line 5. Line 5 uses 6-car trains of classes 2000A and 2000B. It was the last line built in a narrow profile and gauge.

Madrid Metro Line 6

Line 6 of the Madrid Metro opened originally between Cuatro Caminos and Pacifico in 1979. This is one of two circular lines in Madrid, but unlike Line 12, it did not open as a full circle. The circle was completed in 1995, taking four stages from its original opening.

First on 7 May 1981, the line was extended from Pacifico to Oporto, then on 1 June 1983, the line was extended from Oporto to Laguna. Thirdly the line was extended from Cuatro Caminos to Ciudad Universitaria serving Madrid's Complutense university on 13 January 1987, and lastly the line was extended from Ciudad Universitaria to Laguna on 10 May 1995, completing the circle. Arganzuela-Planetario station opened on 26 January 2007 between Legazpi and Méndez Álvaro. This station serves Madrid's Planetarium and IMAX theatre.

Line 6 is one of the busiest lines on the network, so to ease congestion on the busiest stations, Madrid adopted the "Barcelona method". This means that at some stations there are two side platforms, and an island platform. This was also used on Line S, but only two station preserves the original layout (Campamento and Carabanchel).

Line 6 uses 6-car trains of mostly class 5000, but there are a few class 7000's on this line. In the future, the second batch of class 9000 is projected to run on line 6.

Madrid Metro Line 7

Line 7 of the Madrid Metro originally opened on 17 July 1974 between Pueblo Nuevo and Las Musas. On 17 May 1975, the line was extended from Pueblo Nuevo to Avenida de América and for many years, this remained the length of Line 7. This was a problem as line 7 was very scarcely used. This was solved in 1998 and 1999 when an extension to Pitis was opened in four stages. First, it was opened between Avenida de América and Gregorio Marañón on 1 April 1998, then between Gregorio Marañón and Canal. Thirdly between Canal and Valdezarza and finally between Valdezarza and Pitis. Pitis however is the only station on the Madrid metro to have restricted opening times. This is because Pitis is a very small village, and the station's main purpose is to provide interchange for Renfe services. So most trains only run as far as Lacoma. There is also a station built between Lacoma and Pitis called Arroyo del Fresno, but it is not open yet because the area around has not been developed. When this happens, the station is ready for immediate opening. On 4 May 2007, Line 7 was extended from Las Musas to the towns of Coslada and San Fernando. At the first station, Estadio Olímpico next to Madrid's La Peineta Stadium, passengers have to change trains for Metro-Este to Coslada and San Fernando - the so-called Line 7B. Line 7A uses 6-car trains of class 9000, and line 7B 3-car trains of class 9000.

Madrid Metro Line 8

Line 8 of the Madrid Metro opened between Mar de Cristal and Campo de las Naciones on 24 June 1998. An extension to Barajas via Madrid Airport was opened in 1999 and in 2002 an extension to Nuevos Ministerios and Colombia opened. Originally this line was a small-profile line, but in 2002 it became a large rolling stock line. The line uses 4-car versions of class 8000 trains. In 2007 an intermediate station called Pinar del Rey opened between Colombia and Mar de Cristal, as did an extension to the new Terminal 4 of Madrid Airport.

Madrid Metro Line 9

Line 9 of the Madrid Metro opened on 31 January 1980 between Sainz de Baranda and Pavones. Later it was extended from Avenida de América to Herrera Oria on 3 June 1983, however this section was separate from the original part until the missing fragment from Avenida de América to Sainz de Baranda was opened on 24 February 1986. On 1 December 1998, the line was extended from Pavones to Puerta de Arganda. The stations on this part were marked with unified wall color each, which makes it easier to spot the right destination. As the approach worked it was used in many of the new suburban Madrid stations. However, the color code is not included in the maps yet.

Madrid Metro Line 10

Line 10 of the Madrid Metro is in fact the product of two lines, the former line 8 from Fuencarral to Nuevos Ministerios and the former Suburbano (also known as Line S) from Alonso Martínez to Aluche, this section being named line 10 in the 1980s, and formerly operated by FEVE until the management of Line S was transferred to the Community of Madrid. In the 1990s, Madrid planned for these two lines to become one, but there was a problem. Line 8 was large profile and Line S was Small profile, so Madrid decided it was going to rebuild the Suburbano section to fit large profile rolling stock, a feat that took five years to complete. During this process, all island platforms were demolished, tunnels were widened, platforms cut back and stations modernised. Also a new section between Alonso Martinez and Nuevos Ministerios had to be built, with an intermediate station at Gregorio Marañón. Finally once this was all finished, the whole line could use large rolling stock and the line was extended from the New Casa de Campo to Colonia Jardín. The section between Casa de Campo and Aluche was handed over to line 5 which now terminates at Casa de Campo.

Madrid Metro Line 11

Line 11 of the Madrid Metro opened between Plaza Elíptica and Pan Bendito on 16 November 1998. For eight years it had only three stations. In 2006 the line was extended from Pan Bendito to La Peseta with two intermediate stations. Line 11 however is projected to become one of the longest lines in Madrid.

La Fortuna is definitely under construction, Plaza Elíptica-Avenida de la Ilustración is planned to be built in the next project phase. The link to Metrosur at Leganés Central or San Nicasio is on the plans and should also be built. A date has not yet been given for opening, but the line is under construction. Line 11 is built for large rolling stock, however due to its current short length, it is operated by class 3000 small rolling stock, and the platforms have been widened to fill the gap. When the next extension is built, the line will run as a wide profile line.

Madrid Metro Line 12

Line 12, also known as MetroSur (Spanish for MetroSouth), is a line of the Madrid Metro inaugurated in 11 April 2003.

Line 12 is a circular line that actually is not in the city of Madrid, but links five suburban towns south of Madrid, serving around 1 million people. The towns linked by Line 12 are Alcorcón, Leganés, Getafe, Fuenlabrada and Móstoles.

The line runs underground, apart from a few stations at surface level. Line 12 uses 3-car trains of class 8000, but up to three extra coaches per train can be ordered if passenger numbers increase.

Total length is 41 km and 28 stations.

Line 12 stations have elements of art, such as the murals in the Hospital Severo Ochoa Station honoring the Nobel Prize winning biochemist, Severo Ochoa. Surface level stations are covered by massive roofs, with some glass to allow daylight - a similar system is used in Copenhagen and Prague Metro systems.

There are plans to build two new stations: Fuenlabrada Oeste between Loranca and Hospital de Fuenlabrada, and secondly Fuenlabrada Este between Arroyo Culebro and Parque de los Estados. No completion dates for these new stations have been given, as they are still in the planning stage.
