Visitors will be able to learn, for example, about the future extensions of the underground, the digitalisation of its facilities, the modernisation of the Santiago Bernabéu station and the innovative autonomous bus that operates at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), developed jointly by the CRTM and the General Directorate of Traffic.
