    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Betty, The Madrid Barajas Airport does not have a major rail station. There is a local station at the airport, serviced only by local Metro/Cercanias trains that operate between the airport and the city of <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a>. To commute from the Madrid Barajas Airport into the city of <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a>, you would take Line C-1 of the the local Cercanías train network to the Atocha Cercanías station. Atocha Cercanías is adjacent to the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/train-station/atocha-train-station.html">Puerta de Atocha</a> station, where trains to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html">Barcelona</a> depart from. Therefore, you would just walk between the stations. The Cercanías trains from the airport to Atocha Cercanías depart once every 30 minutes throughout the day and take about 26 minutes in duration. You would just pay to board these Cercanías trains locally upon arrival. You would purchase tickets for your roundtrip between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a> and <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html">Barcelona</a> by clicking on 'Find Fares &amp; Schedules' on the homepage of our website, <a title="Link httpwwwraileuropecom" href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">www.raileurope.com</a>. The trains between <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a> and <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html">Barcelona</a> are high-speed '<a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/ave/how-to-book.html">AVE</a>' trains. Generally, trains in <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/index.html">Spain</a> can only be booked within 60 to 90 days of an intended date of departure. If your intended travel falls outside of this time frame, you would just enter a date within the next 60 or 90 days to get an idea of cost and view schedules when searching the route on our website. Trains from <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/madrid/index.html">Madrid</a> arrive into the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/train-station/sants-train-station.html">Sants station</a> in <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/spain/barcelona/index.html">Barcelona</a>, which is the main station. You would get from there to the port by taking line 3 (the green line) of the Metro in the direction of Trinitat Nova to the Drassanes stop. Across the street from the Drassanes station past the giant Columbus statue, there are buses that will take you to the port terminals.<br>.
