The Regional Government of Madrid reinforces transport to facilitate access to EBAU exams with a special Mobility Plan
The Community of Madrid has drawn up, through the Regional Transport Consortium, a special Mobility Plan for the four days of EBAU, which begins next Monday and includes the extension of the Metro, Metro Ligero, city and intercity bus services, as well as Renfe Cercanías to guarantee the best social and health conditions and to try to avoid crowding in the trains.
In addition, the regional administration has reached an agreement with the Protección Civil, Local Police and SAMUR, which will provide security devices outside all the campuses to ensure that there are no concentrations at the entrances and exits of the faculties.
Students taking exams are advised to leave early enough to arrive at the university at least 30 minutes before the call, to avoid jams and congestion.
The planned Metro and Metro Ligero reinforcements include lines 6, 7A and ML12, which will increase train frequency between 7:30 am and 10:00 am and from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. As for the EMT, it will offer 165 buses distributed over 13 lines, as well as inspectors on the street to report any incidents.
Likewise, the 31 interurban lines and 9 urban lines in the towns of the Community of Madrid that serve the university campuses will be reinforced. Renfe will also increase the frequency of the four Cercanías lines that stop at the campuses.
In addition to these measures, a protocol will be implemented at major transport interchanges to reinforce their security and surveillance, paying special attention to compliance with health and social distance measures so that there are no concentrations of people at the docks and so that users can wait in an orderly fashion.
Lastly, the Centre for Innovation and Public Transport Management (CITRAM) of the Regional Transport Consortium will monitor the evolution of the transport system during the test days.
