I do wish the lines would be color-coded. The map right now looks rather bare and black lines with circles seems awfully middle-school if you ask me. Hopefully once the next few lines are tacked on we can get 'red', 'yellow', etc to make it easier on the eyes (and mind, considering color-based metro lines are easier to mentally visualize)

That will eventually happen. As you can see in this masterplan map, the 4 proposed lines + trolley line are color-coded.

Line 1: Red

Line 2: Green
Line 3: Purple
Line 4: Sky Blue
Trolley Line: Blue

In the distant future, will any of Panama City's skyscraper districts (Punta Paitilla, Punta Pacifica and Costa del Este) be served by the Panama City Metro? Also, it is unknown how exactly will Tocumen Airport's passenger terminals be connected to the planned Tocumen metro station.

Paitilla is included in the Light Rail route in the masterplan (above your post) that will parallel the Cinta Costera. Punta Pacifica and Costa del Este should absolutely, 100% be linked up eventually but these are $$$ areas and the demand might not be there relative to other parts of the city (even if the density suggests otherwise)

That was early last Fall when it was being tested initially and the government used this act of graffiti to pass insanely harsh vandalism laws against the metro. Really harsh laws.

They could have a spur going along the waterfront, almost as a Streetcar like system.

Well that's great they didn't leave lower class people out of transit development. At least they will be able to get work easily.

Lower class people are the primary market for the metro. Middle class and wealthier Panamanians have their own cars and show less demand in riding the metro. Which is why none of the first 4 lines touch the major rich people hubs like Punta Paitilla, Costa del Este and the new Country Club subdivisions to the East of Costa del Este. The first line instead took in one of the worst neighborhoods (Curundu) and enters two other very poor jurisdictions (San Miguelito especially). Outside of that the last major impoverished neighborhood without metro acess is El Chorillo, but even then it is only 1.5-2km from Cinco de Mayo Station

As the metro expands, as long as they can keep the system safe and clean, the middle class may switch too. The traffic is horrendous in the city.

I was thinking that the roads in the Punta Patilla and Costa del Este areas (with loads of 50+-floor skyscrapers and most of their residents having their own cars) can easily get congested because they are narrow.

Not for a while. Costa Del Este is actually just basically a strip of tall buildings at this point. This picture's a bit old and development has moved internally but it's not far from the truth:



I'd say in 15-20 years that metro access will be imperative as the area fills in completely and the area goes from being a mostly residential area (with some notable exceptions) to being a commercial and shopping center for all Panamanians. Punta Paitilla is dense and is planned to be connected by monorail to the Cinta Costera where you will then be able to pick up the subway at Miramar. That's probably ten years from now though since Lines 2 and 3 are the priority for the next 5 years.

Panama Metro ticket will cost 35 cents


The fare on the Metro de Panama, which has worked for free since last April, is 35 cents from June 15th, reported Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli.

Before the opening of the Metro in Panama City, the president announced that the ticket would have cost less than a dollar. In this city, buses charge 25 cents per passenger.

Since opening, the modern transport system free of charge mobilized six million passengers...

Actually the official currency of Panama is the US dollar, along with the Panamanian balboa, which is tied to the US dollar at an exchange rate of 1:1. However, there are no bank notes of balboa, just coins (1 to 100 cents). Therefore, US dollar bank notes are commonly used.
