The Intermodal Station brings together the different modes of transport that have stops at Plaza de Castilla. The object of the project is to minimize the access time of buses to the station and the connection times between modes and as a result reducing the total travel time of modal transport chain.
The new Plaza Castilla Intermodal Station is located in the north of the city of Madrid.
The different modes of transport involved in the intermodal station are: intercity buses that access to the city by the roads in the north of the Region, the urban buses that stop in the surrounding area of the square, the three Metro lines, L -1, L -9 and L -10, which have stops nearby the square and taxis and private vehicles as well.
The Intermodal Station has four levels, three of them underground
There are 40 intercity bus bays and other ones for urban buses. The new intermodal Station integrates lines 1, 9 and 10 of Metro de Madrid and has an underground car park with 400 spaces.
Commercial areas are disposed contributing to the financing of the construction and operation of the intermodal Station.
It has exclusive access tunnels for intercity buses on two levels, longer than 1 km, which reduce access time to the Intermodal Station avoiding the main areas of traffic congestion.
It also has parking area for empty buses and a complex system of ramps that allow the different communications with the different levels and alternative accesses and exits to the main tunnels.
The project includes the final design of all elements, infrastructure, architecture, all kinds of systems and facilities, furniture, etcetera.
