Accessibility

Metro has universal accessibility measures for people with reduced mobility at all its stations

In its effort to bring the underground closer to more citizens, Metro de Madrid provides extensive coverage on a regional level, reaching 12 municipalities within the Autonomous Community of Madrid, where 76% of residents have a Metro station less than 600 metres away from their homes. Its effort is now focused on improving accessibility in the existing network.

At its 301 stations Metro Madrid has already implemented a series of measures and operational rules agreed upon by the Council for the Promotion of Accessibility and Eradication of Barriers of the Community of Madrid, aimed at facilitating accessibility to installations. 

The list of the measures implemented at stations is as follows:

  • Installation of means for overcoming differences in levels: lifts, escalators and/or ramps.
  • Platform edge signage with longitudinal blister paving.
  • Safety area signage with corduroy paving on platforms and at ticket machines. 
  • Signage of fixed stairs entry and/or exit areas with corduroy paving in the forward direction.
  • Marking of step edges with non-slip strips. 
  • Extension of fixed stair handrails when necessary.
  • Reinforcement of vertical user signage, with large-size notices highlighting the line number and direction, when so required.
  • Indication of obstacles and columns with red vinyl strips.
  • Removal of obstacles and danger points.
  • Installation of ischial supports on platforms. 
  • Adjustment of handrails and entrance doorways.
  • Braille marking of stairway handrails indicating their direction.
  • Braille text on lift signage.
  • Installation of voice cards in lifts with more than two stops.
  • Ticket machines with information in Braille and voice browsing system (the only metro network in the world that has this extended to all ticket dispensing machines).
  • Installation of an easy-opening spring on windbreak doors.
  • Adjustment of the entrance lighting system, if so needed, preventing reflections as well.
  • Installation of displays on L-2 platforms for the issue of messages in writing.
  • Adaptation of L-7 platform edges for correct ramp deployment on the first cars of the new rolling stock (8000 and 9000).
  • Installation of platform edge warning surface at several stations of lines 4, 8, 11 and 12.

Measures for facilitating accessibility on the Rolling Stock:

  • Strong chromatic contrast between doors and the rest of the train body.
  • Deployable ramp at the front door of the first car of each train.
  • Door opening button of contrasting colour, with signage in Braille.
  • Handrails and seats of contrasting colour throughout the whole train.
  • Visual and acoustic door opening and closing signalling, both inside and outside the trains.
  • Space reserved in the front car of each train for anchoring wheelchairs and ischial support, with descriptive pictograms.
  • Reserved space separation screen.

The Metro Accessibility Plan is endowed with a total investment of 145.7 million euro and was agreed upon with the Spanish Committee of Representatives of Persons with Disabilities (CERMI). Its implementation will continue until 2020 and will involve the installation of over 80 lifts at 32 stations. This project is co-financed by the Community of Madrid and the European Union by way of the European Regional Development Fund 2014‐2020. The measures carried out will help to improve the mobility of the 322,000 people living in the Community of Madrid with functional diversity.

The objectives of Metro Madrid include full accessibility to the contents of this website by all citizens, irrespective of their having a disability, in accordance with the provisions for Public Administration websites of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce Services Act.

For this purpose, our accessibility guidelines are as follows:

  • Compliance with WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) of the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), at its AA level.
  • Verification of compliance with the above-mentioned guidelines through the Web Accessibility Test (WAT).
  • Auditing of compliance with the guidelines by independent third parties.

These guidelines are applicable to all new pages and services of the portal metromadrid.es.
Our work and efforts are aimed at achieving ongoing improvement of the accessibility of this portal, and this is why we hope to receive your understanding and cooperation. We invite you to assist us in improving this website by means of sending your comments and suggestions to the address: accesibilidadweb@metromadrid.es.

Documents in PDF format

The Metro Madrid web contains information in pdf format. In the majority of cases that information is offered in other accessible formats, although there is information prior to the certification of the website that only exists in pdf format. Metro Madrid accepts the commitment to supply that information in another format, subject to prior request at the e-mail address accesibilidadweb@metromadrid.es, stating the information or document in question.

Accessibility of the news search engine

The website has a news search engine so that everyone may carry out searches relating to press releases in any date range.

The search engine permits selection of a date by means of a pop-up calendar. This calendar has been implemented using JavaScript technology. So as not to penalize those users who do not have this technology in their web browser, the search engine also allows the date to be typed in (with format dd/mm/yyyy, for instance 01/01/2011).

Furthermore, the pop-up calendar permits keyboard browsing so a peripheral device, such as a mouse, is not needed for selecting a date .In order to browse with the keyboard, once it is open, press:

Ctrl+arrows (←,↑,→,↓) to browse between days.
PgDn for the next month, PgUp for the previous month.
Ctrl+Alt+PgDn for the next year, Ctrl+Alt+PgUp for the previous year.
