    Hello.

    It is true that there is currently construction between Antequera and Granada, as they work to enable high-speed rail on the line to connect Granada with Madrid and Seville. With that being the case, it is also true that travelers coming from Madrid would take the train as far as Antequera, where the Spanish rail network is providing bus service for those continuing on to Granada.

    The buses are scheduled specifically to connect up directly with train arrivals from Madrid. Therefore, you will go directly to the bus after your train arrives into the station. You would have about 10 to 20 minutes between your train's arrival into Antequera and the next bus to Granada. I believe the bus ride from Antequera to Granada would take about 1.5 hours. Rest assured, your ticket for the train from Madrid to Antequera is sufficient to board the bus to Granada.

    You would purchase tickets and check schedules for trains from Madrid to Antequera by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage. For Antequera to be recognized by our website, you would have to type it as 'Antequera Sta.ANA', like so:



    Generally, trains in Spain can only be booked once within 60 to 90 days of an intended date of departure. The trains from Madrid to Antequera are high-speed AVE or Altaria trains.

  • We'll be arriving on a train from Cordoba at 11:17 on Saturday 26th September. How can we find out what time the next bus will be leaving. And will our train ticket from Cordoba cover the bus fare or do we need to buy bus tickets?

    • I called the number Jeff (the official) typed above and spoke with Mariana. She said RailEurope cannot disclose any bus schedules or details. She confirmed there are 2 local bus companies (one is called ALSA) who are committed to providing service to RailEurope passengers during the construction phase. She stated buses are continuing to run AFTER the last train arrives in Antequera and fares run around $10 - $22 USD (approx). For the 'special service', there is no way to book bus tix online as they have not updated their websites. She said that most passengers buy their bus tickets right at the Antequera rail station and the buses come right to the station. I'm going from Madrid to Granada on 2/13, I'll let everyone know how it goes.

      Hi Deborah,

      Thanks for your post. That would be great if you could let us know how it goes.

      It is true that the buses to Granada are scheduled to coordinate with the trains arriving from Madrid. However, they have actually recently started to run regional trains again between Antequera and Granada, so you wouldn't necessarily have to even take one of these buses.

      You would still take a high-speed train from Madrid to Antequera ('AVE' and 'Altaria' trains), where you would switch to the regional train that would take you to Granada ('Media Distancia' trains).

      To purchase tickets for this on our site, you would piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Also, for Antequera to be recognized by our website, you would have to type it as 'Antequera Sta.ANA'. Therefore, you would do one search for the segment from Madrid to 'Antequera Sta.ANA' and then another search for connecting trains from 'Antequera Sta.ANA' to Granada.

      With that said, our website has been down today, so I would recommend checking again later or tomorrow. We apologize for the inconvenience.
