We will be arriving at the Madrid airport and traveling to the Atocha station for our train trip to Seville. I was planning to take a cab but am concerned about the time and expense. As I read some posts it now seems that there is a train that runs from Terminal 4 of the airport directly to the Atocha station, which is much easier than using the metro and transferring. We will be arriving via Lufthansa at Terminal 1.
So my plan is to take the shuttle to terminal 4 and take the Cercania line C1 train to the Atocha station. Our Ave tickets are marked 'combinado cercanias'. Does this mean we have a free ride to the train station? I found this option difficult to find so I was glad to see it mentioned here. Can someone confirm that this will work? We are a family of four traveling with a carry on for each person, including two teens who navigate New York and mastered the Paris metro easily so we are not afraid to try the train system!
