The C3 commuter service between Madrid and Aranjuez will be by bus from May 1 to 5

The service of line C-3 of the Madrid Cercanías network between the capital and Aranjuez will be carried out by road between May 1 and 5, with three special bus services that will operate during the five days that the cuts will last, with a frequency of passage between 8 and 15 minutes.

Specifically, the first of the special services, line SE 1, will circulate between Aranjuez and San Cristóbal Industrial, with stops in Ciempozuelos, Valdemoro, Pinto, Getafe Industrial, El Casar and San Cristóbal Industrial. From this last stop, users will be able to continue their trip to the capital by train.

A second service, line SE 2, will run between Aranjuez and Getafe Sector 3, with stops in Ciempozuelos, Valdemoro and Pinto. Finally, the third special line, SE 3, will also run from May 1 to 5 between Aranjuez and Getafe Sector 3 without intermediate stops. From Getafe Sector 3, users will be able to continue their journey to Madrid on C4 trains.

During the five days of infrastructure improvement works that Adif will carry out on the Ciempozuelos-Getafe Industrial section, Renfe Cercanías will reinforce customer service at C-3 stations, the company has indicated in a statement.

The objective of this alternative road transport plan is to guarantee both the mobility of users of the C-3 Cercanías and travelers of Medium Distance trains that connect Madrid with Albacete, Alcázar de San Juan and Jaén.

To this end, public service trains from Castilla-La Mancha (Albacete and Alcázar de San Juan) and Andalusia (Jaén), as well as an Intercity from Almería, will be eliminated on the Madrid-Aranjuez-Madrid section from May 1 to 5. , both included, and said journey will be made during those days with a special bus service, which will have its departures and arrivals at the Chamartín, Atocha and Aranjuez stations.

From Chamartín, the buses will depart and arrive at the parking lot, while at the Atocha station the buses will leave from Calle Méndez Álvaro, at the exit of the AVE station. In Aranjuez, the arrival and departure of the coaches will also be from the parking lot.

In a statement, Renfe has warned that during this alternative transportation plan, the punctuality and connection commitments of the affected trains, as well as bicycle and pet transportation services, will be suspended.

The affected Media Distancia trains will not change their current departure time, both from Albacete, Alcázar, Jaén and Almería, and from Madrid. Travelers will make the Madrid-Aranjuez route by bus and between this station and the destination station by Media Distancia train or Intercity in the case of Huércal-Almería.

During the railway traffic cut, Renfe will reinforce information to travelers through all communication and customer service channels to communicate these adjustments to the service, required by the works that Adif will carry out on the infrastructure.

The website www.renfe.com will enable specific notices for trains with transfers and detailed information will be available on station signage. Messages will also be reinforced through train and station public address systems.
