Politics. The government wants to leave on a high note and promised a very low-fare as a way to garner support in Panama City during the elections. They lost the election regardless but it would be disastrous to backtrack on a promise they crowed about so much. So $0.35 fares with the vast majority of costs for maintenance and upkeep of the metro going to the Panamanian government.

Yes. There's plans for another bridge across the Canal to compliment (or replace) the Bridge of the Americas.

Panama Line 2 project management deal signed
Monday, July 14, 2014



A consortium of Barcelona Metropolitan Transport, Ayesa, Spain, and Louis Berger, United States, has been awarded a $US 32m five-year contract by Metro Panama to provide project management, coordination and technical assistance on the construction of the second metro line in Panama City.

The 23km 15-station line will run on a mostly-elevated alignment from an interchange with Line 1 at San Miguelito serving the districts of December 24 and New Tocumen before terminating at La Doña.

TMB and Ayesa provided project management and supervision services on the 13.7km Line 1, which opened in April this year

There are some similarities between the trains of the Panama City Metro and the Santo Domingo Metro. They both have Alstom Metropolis three-car trainsets. In anticipation of future ridership demands, all the stations of the Panama City Metro are built to accommodate five-car trainsets (The Santo Domingo Metro stations can accommodate six-car trainsets).

Panama City Metro platform length: At least 85 meters
Santo Domingo Metro platform length: At least 102 meters.

Where did you get that info from?

Panama City Metro platform lenght is at least 100 meters, enough lenght to accommodate six-car trainsets:

"El Metro de Panamá se concibe como un sistema de transporte masivo de capacidad entre media y pesada, con trenes de tipo metro convencional con ruedas de acero, compuestos de un máximo de 6 vagones para una longitud aproximada de 100 metros, con capacidad máxima estimada para transportar hasta 40,000 pasajeros/hora-sentido diseñado para el año 2035."

Based on the fact that the length of one car is 17 or 18 meters. Also, I measured the platform lengths on Google Earth and found out that the platform length was 92 meters. (The 85 meters estimate was the train length, 17 x 5= 85).

Panama City’s metro is the only metro which lies between North & South America. It has some uniqueness. I never saw such a metro system anywhere in world, which collects electricity completely from OVERHEAD RAIL. In many cities (including the capital of my country - Delhi) metro cars uses overhead rails at underground portion, but changed to overhead wire at overground portion. But here I see overground portion uses overhead rail. How amazing!!! Really new Idea. Is there any speciality for using such system? Please clear my query.

You mean the Norh-Esat Line of Singapore City metro? Yes, It uses overhead rail (not wire), but that line is completely underground. Many underground line in the world uses overhead rail, but in Panama City it is used by overground or elevated section also. I I called it is unique.

Barcelona metro lines also have overhead rail on surface (L1 and L5) and elevated sections (future L10). It's not an unique feature of Panama's metro.

Thank u arctic carlos.

Once there was a tram network in Panama City, which was closed in 1941. I heard some plans of return of tram, but nothing materialized.







Some phots and a map I've posted.

Likely came to the same fate as the rest in North America.

It is great to see Panama getting a world class system.
