Today, Metro de Madrid launches new audio content in podcast format that seeks to publicise different aspects of his history and the service it offers to its users, along with certain less well-known aspects of the public enterprise.

These podcasts will be aired periodically on Spotify, YouTube and Ivoox and will be shared on Metro de Madrid’s official social media.

The new content has been launched with a visit to the works at Gran Vía station, which will shortly reopen its doors to the public, after a series of remodelling works.

This podcast allows us to see the details of the works that have been performed on the station, its connection with Renfe Cercanías, the museum it will house inside and the reconstruction of the exterior pavilion by the architect Antonio Palacios, among other features.

This is just the first of the issues to be addressed in the podcasts, which will also uncover certain unusual features of the classic underground trains that are on display at Chamartín station and on the figure of Antonio Palacios. Furthermore, this will bring listeners closer to the daily reality of the underground, showing how the service is opened, what a day is like at the emblematic Sol station and the maintenance works that are carried out at night.

The podcasts will include the participation of Metro staff specialised in each of the aforesaid aspects, from line coordinators to commercial supervisors and even the staff at the company’s Command Post.

By launching these podcasts, Metro offers its users a new service on its digital channels, strengthening its commitment to those networks and social media where the underground plays a very active role. More than 580,000 on Twitter, 84,000 on Facebook and 56,000 on Instagram follow Metro’s daily publications, which offer information of interest and on the underground service, including answering user queries and requests for information. Metro also has a presence on Linkedin, Youtube and Spotify.
