Madrid Airport to Granada

My daughter and friend arrive at Madrid at 9:50 am on Aug 19. They need to immediately go to Granada for a program that starts the next day. They will be studying at the Univ of Granada for the next year, so they will have a suitcase plus carry on.

The 10:30 bus leaves too soon, so is there another bus from the airport, and if not, where is the best place to catch a bus to Granada? They'll take a taxi to the bus. Also, if there is more than one terminal in Granada, which would be convenient to the University, or does it matter.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your quick reply, but I learned of the Alsa website from previous posts. The problem is that it lists a number of places for the bus in both Madrid and Granada, and I have no idea which would be the most convenient or best in each city.

Also, should they buy in advance or at the bus? (As the flight might be delayed I'm hesitant to buy in advance.) And is there a discount for a student card?

They take a taxi to Méndez Alvaro Transport Interchange & Estación Sur Bus Station, C/. Méndez Álvaro, 83. Madrid 28045 which is a huge transport interchange, (and I remember little of it, so sorry cannot help with Alsa ticket office location).

There is only one Granada bus station and that is their destination. No other permutations containing Granada are relevant to you.

No, I would not purchase in advance.

Discount - you will have to peruse the website, but I would not think so if leaving purchase to the last minute. (Cheap already, do you not think?).

Best wishes.
