Bikes & MLOBikes & MLO

In its commitment to intermodal connection and sustainable transport, MLO provides access to some of the main Nature Trails of the Autonomous Community of Madrid thanks to its public transport plus bicycle combination. Evidence of this commitment is the extension of bicycle entry times by more than six hours on working days and the installation of bicycle racks at twelve of the stations, in other words, 43% of our stops already have bicycle parking.

REB

Bicycle Parking Network (REB) is a set of bicycle parking lots located in Metro and Cercanías stations, and in marquees or intercity bus stations of municipalities in the Community. This integration with public transport makes it easier for users to park their bicycles in the foyers or in the vicinity of the different accesses to the Transport Network of the Community of Madrid, thus encouraging intermodal transport.

MLO has joined the REB, and currently has seven stops throughout its system for those users who use the bike on a daily basis. (Consult here concrete stops).

GREEN ROUTES

The Nature Trails that run along the route of the ML2 and ML3 lines promote the enjoyment of nature, the practice of sport and cultural outreach to emblematic sites in towns such as Boadilla del Monte and Pozuelo de Alarcón.
