Vaguely similar to the Jubilee Line Extension in London, but great nonetheless!

I like the entrances to the station, but I don't like the cladding on the inside whatsoever. It makes the stations seem quite cramped, I don't know why it just looks odd...

It's strange seeing such small gauge tracks in the stations, it's like a horny train set!

The cladding is concrete, it is the same concrete that supports the cavern. As per the cramped feeling, I can tell you that lord Foster's idea was exactly the opposite, that's why his design minimises the underground routes for passengers transiting in or out. For example making a huge cavern size in which ticket dispensers and validating systems could be fitted.

Good photographic work mates ...

I looked at them again, and I think I was being unfair in my earlier post. Though, I think it's mainly down to the fact that the ticket hall/passageway are positioned on top of the platforms... i'm not sure really, the concrete design makes it look, odd, I can't quite put my finger on it. It's just the platforms, the rest looks great.

Bilbao municipality is around 350.000 but metro area is about 800.000-1.000.000. The metro goes to Barakaldo, Getxo,Leioa,etc... which are independent municipalities.

The municipality of Bilbao is very small and dense but the city itself is bigger, over 900.000 inhabitants.

BILBAO | Public Transport


The city of Bilbao, in the southern Basque Country, has a growing urban transport network comprised by subways, urban and sub-urban commuter rail, trams and, of course, buses. The network itself is not too large, but is undergoing continuous expansion, with new lines, route variants and new stations being opened every year. This network serves the city and its metropolitan area.

The following is the current (as of September, 2013) network map, which includes lines currently under construction, but not projected lines. This map includes all different transport systems of the city except the bus network.


Metro Bilbao




Currently two lines plus people mover, 40 stations in total; 2 new stations and new line under construction, other two lines projected.

Aldiriak Bilbao




Aldiriak Bilbao or Cercanías Bilbao is a urban commuter rail network part of the Spanish statal Renfe Cercanías network. In Bilbao it has three lines with 44 stations, some of them outside of the metropolitan area.
