Actually it is far from modern, still many old trains and stations. However that isn't a bad thing because the system that has been kept up to date and is on par with modern systems elsewhere in the world. Certainly one of my favorite metro systems in Europe.

Actually Paris metro has a little more stations (380 more or less) but its network is smaller than Madrid(213 km Vs 284 km).
In my opinion Madrid metro is better than Paris metro by far! Trains are clean and confortable, stations are modern and also the cercanias (commuters trains) system is better than Paris RER.

Madrid MA has 5,4 million inh. around 10 years ago, now it has changed a lot, a lot of immigrants have come to Madrid and the Madrid MA has been expanded even to Guadalajara and Toledo provinces.
PS: That's real, I'm not exaggerating But Madrid MA is totally outdated now.

well , metropolitan areas are not well defined in Spain, so it's difficult to say the exact number

more ore less is like:

urban area: 5-5.5 million
metro area: 6.2-6.5 million

Yes I do, but what does that have to do with what we are discussing, anyway?

You have understood what I said.
We were talking about Madrid population because Constipation said Madrid has 4 million inhabitants.
