It is nice that Catania is expanding the metro, I don't like however this practice (not unique to Catania at all) of cheating up by putting "augmented service" maps that comprise buses.

The "Ognina" station

La fermata č molto interessante, da un punto di vista architettonico, con i due binari sfalsati. E' anche dotata di un ampio parcheggio, con fermate anche per i taxi ed i bus.
Peccato per il collegamento alle vie della cittŕ, piuttosto problematico:

My impressions...
Pretty underused line. Just very few people ride the metro.
And it's kind of slow. The acceleration seems to be more of the full loaded cargo train than a metro.

That's a bit strange. At what time/day did you take it?

Vista a livello banchina:






Vista della galleria, direzione Randazzo; si puň facilmente apprezzare la predisposizione della sede ferroviaria per lo scartamento ordinario:





Vista direzione Catania:




Uno dei nuovissimi "Vulcano",nel frattempo, si ferma :

It's normal, at the moment. These are not peak hours.
As many people reports, taking the metro daily, the maximum load hours are between 7 to 9 a.m..
For example, this is a photo from two weeks ago in a regular day around 9 a.m.:

In this moment our subway is mainly used by students (in fact another peak hour is around 1-2 p.m., when they leave schools or university) and workers, so you've taken it in a "dead" period
