There are "Fosteritos" in the following stations:

- Santutxu. (Zabalbide Street)
- Abando. (Abando Square)
- Moyua (Elcano Street & Ercilla Street)
- Indautxu (Areilza Street)
- San Mames (Sabino Arana Street)
- Cruces (Cruces Square)
- Barakaldo (Fueros Street & ???)
- Bagatza
- Sestao (???)

11 "fosteritos" in total, I think. I don´t know if I forget anyone.

And there are other "glassy structures" in:

- Sarriko
- San Inazio (Lekeitio Street & Elorrieta Square))
- San Mames (Termibus)
- Ansio
- Urbinaga (Great viaduct)

Actually, the projects for the tram network expansion are more ambitious. In the city center the tram line will be extended from Rekalde in order to form a circle surrounding all the city center.

The design of the bilbao metro is cool and functional, but the best thing of the metro is the service: the trains are punctual and the stations are safe and very clean

The map looks great, let's hope we see all those expected extensions before 2010-2012 as they are projected.

A very nicely integrated and modern transit system. Other cities should emulate Bilbao when designing their underground stations
