Avanza buses go directly from Madrid Barajas (Terminal 1 or 4) to Salamanca bus station every two hours from 13.00 pm to 22.00 pm. (We recommend you to check the timetable before you come. It can change during the year. Avanza website: www.avanzabus.com
You can buy your ticket in advance on Internet (24,30 € + 2,60 € fee) or from a bus driver (24,30 €). The second option is a bit cheaper but if the bus is full already, you will have to wait for a next one.
The bus firstly leaves Terminal 1 and then passes through Terminal 4 to pick up other passengers.
This option is the easiest one. On following lines we will describe other options.
Take a city bus and go to the train station (Public transportat schedule: www.aeropuertomadrid-barajas.com/transportation/madrid-airport-bybus
