Fantastic Metro!!!! I would have loved to be there for the occasion!

Keep expanding it, please, for the sake of all Dominicans.

This makes me proud.

This pics were posted by Dahian in the Dominican forum.

Bare in mind that the stations are not entirely finished, as you can see the passenger information signs are not in place yet.

Been a while since this has been updated. A second train set arrived a few weeks ago. The metro has been out of service while it's being completed, but during this week they've reopened it as a part of the Book Festival 2008.

Pics from the past few weeks/days.

Also some spaces for shops, and this is also the spot of a new museum (You can see a few images in the background and a sculpture off to the left.)

Don't know if this is an official pass or a temporary pass (I saw a video where there were metro employees tearing the tickets, so it gives me the impression that their tmeporary, or at least an early design for what would be the official tickets)

Congratulations for your new and beautiful metro system!
