City bus, train and on foot Alcalá de Henares has a modern bus service that connects the different areas of the city. The outer campus of the University of Alcalá, where the School of Engineering is located, is served by four urban bus lines (L1A, L1B, L2 and L3).
In addition, several intercity bus lines connect the external campus with the city of Madrid (line 227) and with other points in the region.
The external campus train station is connected to Madrid and to the other two stations in the city (Alcalá de Henares - central and La Garena) with commuter trains every 15-30 minutes.
