With San Juan's Tren Urbano in operation, maybe Havana, which needs better public transport the most, might join the list of Caribbean cities with subways.
Puerto Rico is not a separate country; it is an island under USA. So the ‘Treno Urbano’ is actually an American subway.

Metro is a separate railway system, which
1) Completely independent from other road and rail traffic.
2) Different and better rolling stock than suburban train.
3) Runs on high frequency (from 2 to 5 minutes headway)
4) Much beautiful & decorated station with elevators & escalators.

The first line of the Paris Metro opened in 1900. Its full name was the Chemin de Fer Métropolitain, a direct translation into French of London's Metropolitan Railway. The name was shortened to métro, and many other languages have since borrowed this word.

This is the history how the name ‘metro’ came. Metro is commonly underground, but many systems of world have hybrid systems, i.e. Delhi metro is partly underground and partly elevated. Buenos Aires metro is fully underground, whereas Lima metro is fully elevated. The term ‘subway’ came from the concept of underground rail running.

Although there are some exceptions and adaptations worldwide-
1) Line 2 of Rio de Janeiro metro converted from light rail.
2) Some lines of Hong Kong metro converted from suburban train.
3) Many Japanese cities Fukuoka, Kyoto, Nagoya, Osaka & Tokyo has reciprocal service, i.e. due to same gauge & traction of metro & suburban train, some subway trains continues journey to suburbs via rail line by switching point, and some suburban trains continues journey to city centre via metro tunnel. On these cities, both metro & train is high standard.

Why do you bother? San Juan metro was the first in the Caribbean.

PRELIMINARY WORKS FOR LINE 2 HAVE STARTED

Government puts RD$3.5 billion into transport

Of this money, RD$718 million is going to Metro Line 2


SANTO DOMINGO. The government figures to spend RD$3.577 billion on the system of Massive Fast Transport of passengers, of which RD$728.1 million will go for soil studies, evictions and other incidentals tied to the second phase of the Santo Domingo Metro system. This Metro II system will connect Los Alcarrizos, in the northeast of the city with San Luis in the municipality of East Santo Domingo.

This information is contained in the legislative proposal for the Budget of Income and Spending Law for 2010 that was sent to the Congress by President Leonel Fernandez.

Under the chapter heading of "Projects", there is RD$2.850 billion scheduled for spending on the Metro I line that goes 14 kilometers from Villa Mella to La Feria, but just how the money will be spent is not mentioned.

The first phase of the Metro II line will have a cost of US$790 million and will cover 15 kilometers from Maximo Gomez to Los Alcarrizos. The second phase will have about the same length and go from Maximo Gomez to San Isidro at a similar cost. The sum total of the investment for the two phases of Metro II is US$1.58 billion or RD$55.88 billion or 15% of this budget proposal.

Besides the Metro of Santo Domingo, the government is also working on the cargo and passenger train that will connect Haina and the city of Santiago de los Caballeros.

This below is one of two work fronts that have been formed to begin excavations for the first phase of the second line of Santo Domingo's Metro. Here some pictures courtesy of SSC member Orad:

For one part of this second line an EPB brand Robbins was ordered

A 9.6 m (31.4 ft) diameter Robbins EPB is being readied for excavation of a new metro line in the Dominican Republic’s capitol city. The contract, for Santo Domingo Metro Line 2, was signed with the Dominican Transit Reform Office (OPRET)

Assembly of the machine is currently underway at the Robbins EPB Division China manufacturing facility in Guangzhou. Machine commissioning and launch are scheduled for February 2010.

The custom-designed machine will feature a spoke-type cutterhead and two-liquid back-filling system to effectively excavate soft sands and soils while minimizing ground settlement. Two-liquid back-filling consists of cement plus an accelerant that are combined as they exit the EPB tail shield. The mixture hardens rapidly to stabilize tunnel walls behind segments as well as the surrounding geology.

The 22 km (13.7 mi) long, entirely underground Line 2 will travel from downtown Santo Domingo to Eastern parts of the city, connecting with the previously excavated Line 1.

The first metro line, commissioned in January 2009, stretches 14.5 km (9.0 mi) and has 16 stations, transporting about 60,000 passengers daily. Four more lines are in the design and planning stages to ease traffic in southern and eastern parts of the city.

In light of the earthquake in Haiti, I'm assuming that the Santo Domingo subway didn't sustain any damage because it was far enough away from the epicenter (looks like about 165 miles/260 km). Is the subway built to withstand seismic activity?

SECOND LINE UPDATE

A part of this metro's second line is being build with excavator machines (for rocky ground) like the one seen in the image below:

image hosted on flickr


This is an actual photo of the advance of the works on the station located in the corner of John F. Kennedy Av. with Ortega & Gasset, here we can also see the beginning of the works in the tunnel.

There is another part of the journey of this second line that has a sort of sandy ground on its way, for this part an special custom EPB will be use. The delivery ceremony was already made, here's an update on that:

En un próximo post presentaremos la estación Amín Abel Hasbún y otras imágenes de las instalaciones y los trenes.


Estación Centro de los Héroes

Considerada la estación principal de la Línea 1, tanto por ser terminal de línea, como por su ubicación en uno de los centros institucionales de la ciudad, como por su tamaño y características. Es origen y destino de estudiantes universitarios, empleados gubernamentales y ciudadanos comunes que acuden a realizar trámites en las oficinas públicas que se encuentran alrededor de la misma.

Actualmente es una de las estaciones con mayor movimiento de pasajeros, sobre todo al inicio y final del día.

Estación Francisco Alberto Caamaño

Es una estación de un solo nivel construida a lo largo de la calle Correa y Cidrón en su intersección con la avenida Abraham Lincoln, al lado del Instituto Cultural Domínico Americano. Posee 4 accesos de escaleras mecánicas y estáticas y 2 ascensores. Es una de las estaciones más pequeñas, pero posee todas las facilidades de las demás exceptuando el mezzanine y las áreas comerciales.

Da servicio a estudiantes universitarios y a personas que acuden con sus hijos a consultas médicas en el hospital Robert Reid Cabral, al Archivo General de la Nación o a las oficinas gubernamentales cercanas.

I'm (obviously) highly impressed they managed to build this, but I think the station design is a bit underwhelming.
