The Madrid Regional Transport Consortium (CRTM, Consorcio Regional de Transportes de Madrid1) was founded by the Community of Madrid Act in May 1985, and started work in March 1986 to coordinate the infrastructure and services of the different public transport modes in the region as the Public Transport Authority of the Community of Madrid. The CRTM was a forefront organisation in Spain and its example has been a reference point for various transit authorities that have been set up following the CRTM model.
The secret of our success

The key to CRTM’s successful management is having achieved a triple integration: administrative, modal and fare. Since its creation, the Board of CRTM consists of 20 representatives, mostly from government agencies such as the Community of Madrid (5 seats), the capital’s Municipality (5 seats), the 178 remaining municipalities in the region (3 seats) and the General State Administration (2 seats). There are also representatives of private transport companies (2 seats), trade unions (2 seats) and user and consumer associations (1 seat).
