TV report on Brazilian TV about the Mexico City transport system, featuring a woman who needs 4 hours/day to go to and from work. It's a part of a series comparing cities worldwide with Brazilian cities

Looks really nice from the pics. Clean, efficient, even a bit futuristic. Mexico City should be proud!

I think Mexico City metro is the largest rubber tired metro system in the world. Am I right?

Mexico City has the most modern metro network in North America. It uses mostly rubber tired metro. But I think it is not the best solution. Although they are quieter, accelerate faster, climb steeper, stop quicker, but also costlier because this is not widely accepted and very limited companies manufactures their parts. It is under continuous high investment. I think, for those reasons, the line A & 12 was chosen for steel wheeled cars.

Will future line 10 & 11 also use steel wheeled cars? I recommend that. Rubber tired metro is not an ideal solution.

Please try to answer these -
1) What is the target year of opening line 10 & 11?
2) Why line 10 & 11 were not built early than line 12?
3) Left side, right side or both side, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Mexico City subway network?
4) Elevated, ground level or underground, - which type of stations are in most numbers in Mexico City subway network?
5) Which are the highest and deepest stations of Mexico City metro?
6) Which is the busiest metro station?
7) Which stations have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
8) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?

MEXICO CITY Tram

There is a thread about Mexico City metro, so I think it will be best to open a separate thread about Mexico City tram.

Mexico City tram network was one of the largest in North America, and largest in Mexico. It opened first as horse tram and finally as electric tram in 15/1/1900, so 113 years ago. Networks expanded gradually, with both single & double decker trams, also had funeral trams.

Mexico City's tramway system reached its peak in the 1920s. In 1925 it had 321 passenger motor cars, 20 single-truck passenger trailers, 82 double-truck passenger trailers, 43 freight motor cars, 60 freight trailers, 29 funeral motor cars, 27 funeral trailers and four "special" cars running on 348.61 km of track, covering 93 routes. The company had 4,012 employees.

Closing of the network began in 1930’s, even before construction of metro started. Like many developing countries, when metro system opened and started to expand, tram system started collapsing bit by bit. I heard, since sixties, traffic congestion was getting worse day by day, and number of motor vehicles increased rapidly, by un-controlling of authority, most roads were started getting jam. Many started saying guilty to tram, but none of them thought to control motor vehicles like cars. Finally transport authority decided to replace the tram network mostly by metro. When the metro construction started; all but two tram routes have closed.

Thankfully, it is still present, and not only that, it has modernised very very much, like a light rail style. Finally it came to only one route, comparing the gigantic network.

I can’t find any details route by route map of the full tram network, on its peak time. Please post a details map of Mexico City tramway network, before its starting decline from sixties.

POST AS MANY AS PHOTOS OF MEXICO CITY TRAM PHOTO HERE.


Full tram map, as in 1925.

It's a pity there existing relatively few videos of this network operating.

So there is only one line left? Are there any plans for a light rail / tram revival?

The remaining tram line was converted into a light rail and connects with the metro system. There is also a network of trolley buses which currently stands at 10 lines as well as a metro bus system.
