Line 2 will definitely be like Line 1. Line 3 might be (is expected to be) monorail.

If we consider RER or S BAHN lines as metro lines, there are plenty of these systems using only overhaed lines.

He's specifically talking about overhead RAIL, not wires.

So only Panama City Metro & Barcelona Metro (some lines) has overhead rails.

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –

1) Left side, right side or both sides, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Panama City subway network?
2) Which is the highest station & deepest of Panama City metro?
3) Which is the busiest metro station?
4) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?
5) When the construction of metro started, was the remains of old tram system of Panama City discovered under the surface?

Yes, because Line 3 is planned to serve a low-density area. They can potentially get a major monorail-only bridge crossing the Panama Canal. Clearance below the deck of any such bridge would have to be really high (over 60 meters).

More metro cars for Panama City Line 1
Wednesday, July 29, 2015



THE Panamanian cabinet granted Panama Metro approval on July 21 to proceed with the acquisition of 70 additional metro cars to increase capacity on Panama City metro Line 1

The order will enable Panama Metro to lengthen its trains from three to five cars and increase the fleet from 19 to 26 trains. The total cost of the project is $US 157m, including alterations to stabling and maintenance facilities. The first additional vehicles will arrive in Panama at the end of next year and deliveries will be completed by 2019

At the beginning of operations, the train wash system hadn't been acquired . That pic was taken just days after starting operations (or maybe at the testing phase), so many things were incomplete or not tendered (such as road reconstruction, wash system, civil works related, among others).


Nowadays, this is how the L1 Wash System looks like:

PANAMANIAN president Mr Juan Carlos Varela officially launched construction on Panama City's second metro line on October 5, when a groundbreaking ceremony was held in the district of Las Mañanitas at the eastern extremity of the line

Line 2 will be 21km long with 16 stations and will run east from an interchange with Line 1 at San Miguelito to San Antonio, and Hospital del Este, terminating at Nuevo Tocumen.
