How to get there...

CoNWeT Lab (and FI-UPM) can be reached by bus, tram, car, or taxi. Following you can find transport information in detail:

  • Bus

    • Bus #865 (See pointmap #2) comes from the "Ciudad Universitaria" metro station (L6), and then stops at the School of Computing, in front of the building 6, just a couple of minutes walking to building 4. The trip takes about 15 minutes.
    • Bus #591 (See pointmap #3) comes from "Aluche" (Metro Aluche, Line 5, and Cercanías (train) Line C5) and it can also be taken in "Colonia Jardín" metro station (Line 10). This bus leaves you between buildings 4 and 5 and the journey takes about 10 minutes.
    • Bus #573 (See pointmap #4) comes from "Moncloa" (Ruperto Chapí st.). It stops outside the School of Computing, in "Urbanización Montepríncipe". The building 4 is about 5 minutes walking from the bus stop. Although it departures from Moncloa, we don't recommend it, because it takes about an hour to get CoNWeT. However, this is the bus to be taken if your hotel is in "Ciudad de la Imagen" and you don't want to take the tram.
    • Bus #566 (See pointmap #5) comes from "Pozuelo" or "Boadilla del Monte" and stops outside too. We don't recommend this bus.
  • Tram

    • Tram #3 (Map - 5). Trams in Madrid are known as "Metro ligero". Line 3 comes from "Colonia Jardín" and it has stops in "Ciudad de la Imagen". To reach CoNWeT Lab, you have to leave the tram in Montepríncipe station, and then, take a 15 minutes walk along the "Avenida Montepríncipe" to get to the School of Computing by the right side of the street.
  • Car and Taxi

    • If you want to come by car, you have to take the "M-40" highway, and leave the road on the exit "36" if you come from the South, or the "38" if you come from the North. The following map shows the path from the M-40 highway to the CoNWeT Lab.
