Spanish term or phrase:intercambiador
el intercamiador situado en el extemo del sistema Bus-Vao, con dos líneas de metro y líneas de autobus-urban transport
Explanation: A subterranean bus terminal with access to two TUBE (UK) or SUBWAY (US) lines and internal city transport.
Specifically, this describes the Intercambiador de la Moncloa, where buses coming from the Carretera de La Coruña (along the Bus-VAO) have their terminal. One level up you find the tube lines Argüelles-Parque de las Naciones and Moncloa-Legazpi. On the level of the street you have the urban bus North Terminal.

Explanation: I am more or less sure of this: "interchanger" is the name being given nowadays to these centres where different types of transport lines intersect (I have done lots of related translations, but can't give references as they are all confidential).
