Traveling from the coast of Andalucia to Spain's capital is easy and comfortable, with a wide range of buses from Málaga to Madrid to choose from every day. Ten to eleven buses leave Málaga on most days, and they only take around 6 hours to get to Madrid. That means finding a quick, suitable connection should be simple.
All buses to Madrid from Málaga are operated by Interbus, running services out of Málaga's bus station to both Madrid's airport and the city's Estación Sur. Getting to all parts of the capital should be easy.
Most buses from Málaga to Madrid will take between 6 hours and 6 hours and 30 minutes, with no changes required along the way. However, travelers should be aware that a couple of journeys every day take longer, about 7 hours and 25 minutes. Please check the timetable carefully before booking.
Buses run throughout the year on a regular schedule between Málaga and Madrid. There are 10-11 services on weekdays and Saturdays, and 9 buses on Sundays. Buses leave as early as 7:35 a.m. and there are clusters of departures around lunchtime and mid-afternoon. A late evening service usually leaves just after 11:00 p.m. as well.
Departure bus station: InterBus services to Madrid depart from the Estación de Autobuses, which can be found a short walk southwest of the old city and west of the port. It's also next to Maria Zambrano train station, connecting buses with the Costa del Sol. The C1 bus also runs a circular route through the city center to the bus station.
Arrival bus stations: There are two arrival points in Madrid. The Estación Sur is the most convenient for the city itself, only a couple of miles south of the center. The Cercanias C1 line or the Metro will take travelers to all parts of Madrid in no time. Alternatively, buses run to Madrid's airport in the Barajas neighborhood.
