School Visits

School Visit Logo

Through its External Relations Office, Metro de Madrid organises a programme of visits geared to children in grades 4, 5 and 6 of Primary School, which take place at our facilities on Line 8 and Line 12 (MetroSur).  The visits are offered to all schools in the Community of Madrid.

The schedule is from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

The Line 8 school visit begins at the Nuevos Ministerios station, travelling to the T-4 Terminal at the Airport in a series-8000 train without passengers, making it possible to explain a number of aspects of the system. During the return trip, in a train with regular passengers, a number of entertainment-learning activities are carried out.

At the end of the ride, the children are taken to the Transport Interpretation Centre located in the Nuevos Ministerios station, in order to visit the exhibit and to view an audiovisual on Metro. The visit ends with a soft drink and a gift for each child.

Visits are organised on Mondays and Wednesdays during the school year.

The visit by school children to MetroSur (Line 12) starts at the Puerta del Sur station. At the station, the children visit the T.I.C.S., where they are given a tour of this operating control centre together with an explanation of how it operates.

Afterwards, the group proceeds to the platform for a trip in a series-8000 Metro train, making it possible to explain a number of aspects of the system.

On arrival at the El Bercial station, the children are escorted to a classroom where a documentary is projected on the history and evolution of Metro de Madrid. The visit ends with a soft drink and a gift for each child.

Visits are organised on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year.

During both visits, the children are accompanied by members of the staff of the Metro de Madrid External Relations Office, to teach them the proper use of our installations in an entertaining and participative manner.

Special education and occupational institution projects

It is our intention to convey a closer knowledge of our company, as an accessible service, to all sectors of society.

The aim of this programme is to work together with these institutions in the development and integration into society of persons with different capabilities by way of the learning and acquiring of skills, in order to foment independent use of Metro de Madrid facilities.

Geared to both Special Education Institutions and Occupational Centres, the subject-matter delivered is tailored to the specific needs of the students and users.

The activity consists of a visit to the facilities of Line 8, which enables them either to gain a first impression of Metro de Madrid in conditions of absolute safety, or else to acquire more in-depth knowledge of this means of transport, as the case may be. It is important to create an environment of peace of mind and confidence, where the mentally handicapped may feel themselves secure and raise doubts and problems, without receiving the impression of being prejudged, and that provides them with a highly favourable direct experience regarding the availability and cooperation of the Metro de Madrid staff.

The visit has backup materials that assist the understanding and learning of basic aspects of operation and safety and lay special emphasis on the recommendations that have to be followed and observed by all our users. These materials act as tools of communication and represent a basic factor in achieving a higher level of personal self-sufficiency. The materials help to familiarize them with the regular use of Metro de Madrid for everyday journeys, both visually and graphically in a straightforward and effective way, accompanied by certain connotations of a recreational nature.
