The Community of Madrid reinforces public transport for Halloween and All Saints' Day celebrations
The Community of Madrid will reinforce public transport on the occasion of Halloween and All Saints' Day. The special mobility plan will be operational from 9 pm on Tuesday 31 October until Thursday 2 November, to guarantee the mobility of citizens during these days of high demand.
On the occasion of Halloween, the Regional Transport Consortium (CRTM) has planned to increase the number of Metro trains by up to 150% on lines 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, which run through the most central areas of the capital. This device will be accompanied by an increased number of staff at stations to ensure the correct operation of the underground.
Moreover, on Wednesdays and Thursdays, the service on the bus lines that connect with the cemeteries will be extended to cater for the greater influx of people at this time of year. Specifically, it will be increased on lines L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5 in Aranjuez; Metro-Cementerio in Arganda del Rey, L2 in Coslada; L1 in Getafe, L1 in Pinto; L1 in Torrejón de Ardoz; L7 in Alcalá de Henares, L2 in Móstoles and the interurban 485 Aluche-Norte Montepinos in Leganés.
Also, in Madrid, 25 extra vehicles will be added to eight lines of the Empresa Municipal de Transportes de Madrid (EMT) that connect with the city's necropolises. Specifically, line 25 Plaza de España-Casa de Campo; 106 Plaza de Manuel Becerra-Vicálvaro; 108 Oporto Cementerio de Carabanchel; 110 Plaza de Manuel Becerra-Cementerio de La Almudena; 113 Méndez Álvaro-Plaza de Ciudad Lineal; and 118 Glorieta de Embajadores-Avenida de La Peseta, as well as the special services Plaza Elíptica-Cementerio Sur (SE702) and Plaza de Castilla-Cementerio de Fuencarral (SE704) will be reinforced.
Metro will also provide specific support to guarantee access to the cemeteries on 1 November with an increase in the number of trains on lines 2 and 6.
RECOMMENDED ACCESSES IN THE CAPITAL
To make the trip to the Almudena Cemetery easier, the CRTM recommends using EMT line 110, which stops at Plaza de Manuel Becerra and goes inside the cemetery. Other arrival alternatives are the 106 Plaza de Manuel Becerra-Vicálvaro or the 113 Méndez Álvaro-Plaza de Ciudad Lineal.
In the case of Carabanchel, the most direct lines are the 108 (Oporto-Cementerio) and the 118 (Glorieta de Embajadores-Avenida de La Peseta), as both routes have stops at the entrance. Users can also opt for the Special Service SE702, which connects Plaza Elíptica with the cemetery.
To get to the Fuencarral station, we recommend using special line 704, which leaves from Plaza de Castilla (SE704), or lines 134 and 178. Finally, to get to San Isidro, the best option is to take the lines 17 (Plaza Mayor-Colonia Parque Europa), 25 (Plaza de España-Casa de Campo) or 50 (Plaza Mayor-Avenida del Manzanares).
