RECIFE..... "The first metro line was built in the early 1980's to relieve the city from increasing traffic problems
and pollution. It runs mostly above ground along a former railway alignment from the city centre in the east towards
the western suburbs and the bus station (Rodoviária). ....."

....................O conceito de metrô é subterrãneo, tal como os ingleses o inventaram no início do século XX. Não é a toa que o nome em inglês é subway.

..................................
O metro (UNDERGROUND) foi sim inventado em Londres em 1863, mas para sua informacao ....acho que quase a metade do METRO aqui em Londres eh de superficie..........especialmente fora da zona 1.



What is a metro? A subway? An underground?

1) An urban electric mass rail transport system, i.e. it is primarily used to move within the city
2) Totally independent from other traffic, rail or street traffic
3) High frequency service (maximum interval approx. 10 minutes during normal daytime service)


Obviously a metro does not have to be underground (this is why I prefer this term to 'subway' or 'underground' or 'U-Bahn' as all these terms imply a tunnel), it can also be elevated or at grade. A metro does not necessarily use heavy rail technology, therefore the Docklands Light Railway or the Lille VAL are full metro services, with the only difference that their capacity is smaller according to the needs of the city/area they serve. It's also irrelevant whether the metro runs on steel wheels or rubber tyres, is monorail or conventional double rail, uses third rail power supply or overhead wire, is fully automated or has a driver, has standard, narrow or broad gauge.
