I plan on visiting the system this year. Isn't Pantitlan one of the biggest stations in the world? Do you know when Line 12 will open?

The stations and most of the trains look bland but at least it is clean and functions.

Mexico City's subway I think carries the biggest passenger load of any subway in the Americas, slightly ahead of NYC.

Its very similar to Montreal's Metro & the cars are a bit cramped.

Still, when I'm down that way, I've found that the subway's the best & most convenient to get around Mexico City!

Some stations are really nice, like Universidad and El Zócalo... I like the system in general, but I think it should be a little bit more expensive to avoid financial problems.

What an extensive Metro, so functional. I appreciate the functionality of the systems and mind less the aesthetics.

More pictures please...

One thing I noticed with Mexico City's metro is that the trains used look similar to those of Montreal and to some extent, Paris. All three use rubber tires.

And all three trains look less wide compared to metro systems of other countries.

But I like the distinctive orange colour.

You're right, Mexico City Metro is based on the Paris Métro technology. You can add Lyon, Marseilles, Santiago and Lausanne to this list.

Correct.
When the Mexico City Metro was being build some engeniers from Paris. France join the mexican engeniers and cnstructurs, so yes, The Mexico City Metro and Paris Metro are very similar, at the time they had identical stations, and the first trains where build in France.

In latter years, Mexico developed a company called Concarril who build the Mexico City Metro trains and latter on Concarril build some trains for the Santiago Metro.

*It's good to know that Concarril a mexican company build rubber tyres and steel wheel cars.

Cheers.

I love it!!!! Im from Puebla and when I go to Mexico City I like so much to go in the metro, or subway!!! and its cheapest, with 2.50 mexican pesos, you can go and transfer to the line you want. And really if you look the pictures, you maybe can see stations old and gray, but this stations are clean and yes it needs some renovation. But its really a very good system! thanks for the post of Mexico city metro!!
