Metro & Tramways of Medellín (Colombia)

Medellín: Metro & Tramways










The urban plot of Medellin drastically changed since its integrated transport system was built. The most visible part of this system is the elevated Metro, with 3 lines and almost 35km. long. Additionally, it’s complemented by 5 lines of cable cars of “Metrocable” (2 of them currently on construction) going straight to the suburbs of the city, a tramway and 2 Bus Rapid Transits (BRTs).

They are built by Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles, who also builds for Santiago and Buenos Aires and DF, among others.

Last month I was in Santiago, where many look similar (maybe they are the same model), and I would prefer a sleeker design but overall Medellin's metro has been very successful with the 7th highest ridership in Latin America while being the 15th largest metro.
