How to get around cheaply and easily in Madrid?

The best way to get around the city without limits is to buy a transportation pass, which allows you unlimited trips for €20 a month or €200 annually. You can easily acquire one through the Guruit app. In addition, you can purchase one on the official web page of Comunidad de Madrid, which will send it to your address within 1-2 weeks, or in person at  Las Oficinas de Gestión de la Tarjeta Transporte Público. The passes can be recharged at the blue machines located in the entrance of all Metro stations. 

Once you have acquired your transportation pass, you’ll have easy access to all the landmarks, entertainment, and more that this beautiful city has to offer.
