Other Destinations 

There is a transportation hub (Intercambiador) at Avenida de América where buses leave for Burgos, Santander, Vitoria, Bilbao, San Sebastián, Soria, Pamplona, Logroño, Granada y Guadalajara, and also a line Madrid-Zaragoza-Barcelona of the bus company called ALSA. There are vending offices for ALSA and Continental (now belonging to the ALSA group). Consult the Movelia website.

The buses going to Segovia leave from Principe Pio, the metro stop that also has the bus stop for Segovia. There is a vending office in the underground area of the metro for the La Sepulvedana going to Segovia, so one does not have to go to the street.
