It is only a metro line of six the master plan is all about. We have to weat till at least half of that is done to talk aobut paying off. The second line is just under construction faster than the first one to cover double the distance the first one has covered, so is with that second line its become a sistem then we will be on position tu evaluate how good everything is going on.

It is suposed to reach that nomber on the first ten years on comercial opoerations. But that depends on the buses working to take passanger in and out of train stations, that part of the sistem is not jet ready.
Firstly, thank you for your informative and comprehensive updates along with Orad. I think you mentioned before that it was a brave political decision to build Line 1, hopefully in time everyone will see it as a wise and prudent investment for SD esp given how chaotic the traffic is.

You have mentioned that the feeder bus routes are still not ready. Can you please explain why they are not ready (bus procurement?), how many feeder routes are you talking about and when it is expected they will be running?

Feeder is just the political side of tha process and is the most dificult to get running because of others issues like forcing the drivers to attend a tecnical school where to learn how to dirve safely.

The sistem is planned to work with the feeder but the streets are not ready to get all this 40 rutes working properly, many of then need serius intervention to make then work properly like tunnel, brieges, etc. But the govertment is planning to open a cople of feeders in few months.

A true marvelous work in Santo Domingo, now if only New York's SAS or any new subway extension/expansion would be built that quickly, that'll be the day...

I hope that Obama´s atministration based on oil tragedy in the gulf of mexico come with a new policy on public transportation based on electricity wicht can come from others resources diferents than oil. Its includes subways of course, expanding then to mayor cities bedside a policy to atract user to change from cars to trains in the main american cities.
