Very interesting! Can you provide some more information and pictures for us? Unfortunately there's not much on Wikipedia about it.

From the photos I've seen so far, the stations look pretty dark and basic. Oh and why are you refering to the trains as "low-floor-vehicles"? The entry seems to be at around 55cm, that's quite common these days for heavy commuter rail and far away from being low floor.

Not dark, but definitely basic (some furnishings still missing anyway).
I will ask Italian forumers to add pics and info.

Infact they definitely are not low-floor trains, but at contrary are metro-like trains

The infrastructure itself could be considered 'metro-like' (if not full-metro as they could easily make a completely 'independent' infrastructure from conventional railway)

Around Bari are many smaller cities so that the urban agglomeration is at ca. 600.000 inhabitants. The metropolitan area has actually about 1 million inhabitants. (Actually I'm surprised!)

What is the scheduled interval of the Bari Metro?
Are there any future extensions planned?

Edit: There will be 48 trains (24 per direction) between 5:00 am and 11:50 pm daily

24 per direction on the WHOLE DAY! That is actually a very low interval for a so-called metro.

I wouldn't sell my car just yet if I lived in Bari.

What a contrast to its bigger Southern neighbor Napoli!

There are only 24 trains per direction because the line operates on a provisional service with a single track.
The provisional period is going to last until the opening of the last station (Regioni) next year, when both tracks will be available.
Trains are scheduled to leave every 5 minutes in the rush hours.
