Affections to public rotational parking:

During the development of the race, traffic cuts will affect to a greater extent the parking areas of Sánchez Bustillo (Centro district) and Daoiz y Velarde (Retiro district).

Public transportation:


Train service will be reinforced on the following three Metro lines: lines 9A and 10A for the beginning (Santiago Bernabéu and Concha Espina) and line 1 (Portazgo) for the end of the two races. In addition, the station most affected, as it is the end of both races, is Portazgo station. Therefore, at some point it may be necessary to intermittently regulate the entrance to Portazgo station due to the large number of passengers. For this reason, this station will be reinforced with public service personnel and security personnel. Maximum attention will also be given, with reinforcement of personnel and security, at the Nueva Numancia, Puente de Vallecas and Buenos Aires stations.
