The Panama Metro and Metro Bus services belong to the modernization program of Panama City’s public transportation. Both systems are compatible, seeking to optimize passenger travel time through the city.
The Metro Secretary began the metro’s construction in 2011, and it is the first project of its kind in Central America.
The Panama Metro started operations on April 6, 2014. The system is composed of 20 trains, with three cars each, and 14 stations. Service begins at San Isidro and ends at Albrook (next to the bus terminal).
