Line 11 of the Madrid Metro opened between Plaza Elíptica and Pan Bendito on 16 November 1998. For eight years it had only three stations. In 2006 the line was extended from Pan Bendito to La Peseta with two intermediate stations. In 2010 the line was extended to La Fortuna with no intermediate stations. Line 11 however is projected to become one of the longest lines in Madrid. The plans show the line should run from:

  • Leganés Central or San Nicasio, still under planning-Transfer to Line 12. Outside Madrid, Zone B1
  • Then current stations (La Fortuna-Plaza Elíptica)
  • Puente de Praga
  • Arganzuela
  • Palos de la Frontera-Transfer to Line 3
  • Atocha Renfe-Transfer to Line 1 and Renfe suburban and intercity services
  • Hospital Niño Jesús
  • Sainz de Baranda-Transfer To Lines 6 and 9
  • Fuente del Berro
  • Marqués de Corbera
  • La Elipa-Transfer to Line 2
  • Ascao-Transfer to Line 7
  • Ciudad Lineal-Transfer to Line 5
  • Hospital del Aire
  • San Juan Bautista
  • Arturo Soria-Transfer to Line 4
  • Atalaya-Transfer to Line 8
  • Avenida de San Luis
  • Chamartin-Transfer to Lines 1 and 10 & Renfe intercity and suburban services
  • Monforte de Lemos
  • Ramón y Cajal
  • Herrera Oria-Transfer to Line 9
  • Avenida de la Ilustración-Transfer to Line 7

Plaza Elíptica-Avenida de la Ilustración is planned to be built in the next project phase. The link to Metrosur at Leganés Central or San Nicasio is on the plans and should also be built. A date has not yet been given for opening, but the line is under construction. Line 11 uses four-car trains of class 8400 large rolling stock since the La Fortuna extension was built, however it used to run with class 3000 small rolling stock.
