Ávila will have covered 85 percent of the links with the long-distance trains that go towards the Cantabrian coast through the Media Distancia services that communicate with Valladolid.
As reported by Renfe, of the eight trains that will use the High Speed line as of December 23 and that will stop stopping in the capital of Avila (three to Gijón, three to Santander, one to Bilbao and another to Iran), it will be possible to link with six.
Long-distance trains are thus lost, although Medium Distance services are gained, going from the current eight to eleven, in addition to the two night trains bound for Galicia that remain.
The first of them will leave Ávila at 7.15 am and will arrive in Valladolid at 8.27 am.
As for the new ones that are launched, there are two newspapers that leave Ávila at 10:48 and 14:10 (they arrive in Valladolid at 12:04 and 15:34), and another that circulates every day, except Saturdays, and that leaves the capital of Avila at 5.30 p.m. to arrive in Valladolid at 6.45 p.m.
On the way back, there is a daily train that leaves Valladolid at 11.30am and arrives in Ávila at 12.56pm; another that leaves at 1:15 p.m. and arrives at 2:29 p.m., also daily; and another, which does not circulate on Saturdays, which leaves at 2:15 p.m. and arrives at 3:41 p.m.
In total, there will be thirteen services that will connect with Valladolid and 22 with Madrid (fourteen Media Distancia and eight TRD Salamanca-Ávila-Madrid).
