Mexico City Metro



System
Total length of Mexico City subway is now 201.7 km. That does not include a light rail line serving the southern part of the city (18 stations, 18 km. from Tasqueña to Embarcadero).

Number of lines: 11 - all rubber tyred like some lines in Paris and the metros of Montréal and Santiago de Chile; except Line A which has standard steel rail). Except for line 1, all lines have some surface section, and line 4 is entirely on the surface.

The first system that uses symbols and colors for identifying stations.

The Mexico City metro is the cheapest subway system in the world, and it has one of the biggest transfer stations in the world: Pantitlán, terminus of lines 1, 5, 9, A, and tens of local bus lines.

From the line 2 southern terminus Tasqueña, a high-floor light rail line runs to Xochimilco (18 stations). This line was upgraded from a former tram line, and opened in two stages: 1986 Tasqueña - Estadio Azteca, 1988 Huipulco - Xochimilco.

Projects

In Aug. 2007 the construction of Line 12 (gold line) was officially announced. It will run from Mixcoac (Line 7) to Tlahuac in the southeast of Mexico City, intersecting with line 3 at Zapata, line 2 at Ermita and line 8 at the future station Del Paso. Line 12 will be entirely underground, with a total length of 24 km and 23 stations. It is scheduled for completion in Sept. 2010 in time for the bicentenary celebrations of Mexico's independence.

Why did the Mexico City Metro decide to adopt rubber-tyre technology on certain lines?

I heard the frequencies at rush hour was high in Mexico, do you know how high?

There are 11 rubber-tyre lines and only one steel line which is line A.

Andn Rubber-tyre trains are better for the city, because it's on top of a lake and because of earthquake zone.

Rubber-tyre makes less noise and less vibration.
And more safeter for the city.

*Also Mexico City has alway's used rubber Tyre since 1969.
And first used steel for line A thatn goes out to the suburban areas and steel is cheper to build.

Cheers.

I actually prefer rubber tires even though the ride is a little bumpier, as the sounds are not as shreaky (metal wheels on metal rails). However, rubber tires don't seem to be commonly used among the world's subway systems.

Well, Paris is the big one. Rubber tires seem to be a very French thing I notice.

Of course every subway with tire was developed by the french compagny RATP.

Montreal
Mexico city
Santiago

Actually the biggest rubber tired system is Mexico city metro with 11 lines.
Paris metro has only 5 rubber tired lines.

I really like Copenhagen Metro's new extension to the airport. The walls along the outdoor pathways that border the tracks are very interesting. You can tell they made an effort to add some design elements to it. Although simple, the outcome is quite pleasant.

One thing I noticed with Mexico City's metro are the cars. They look like light-rail cars to me
