A great way to get around and raised from the busy traffic, so you see a lot from a better perspective. Clean, safe and a good way to get around. Simple to use.

I realize their Metro is new compared to those in the US and Europe, but it is sparkling clean, super cheap, and fast and quiet. This is what mass transit should be!

The metro was very easy to navigate, clean and affordable. As a woman, do not expect a man to offer his seat or a spot on the pole to hold on. Why do people lean on the whole pole when others need to hold on?...More

Sorry I only travelled with adults. The card is so cheap that it really doesn’t matter much in my honest opinion. I bought a rechargeable one that I will use again on my next trip. The card are valid for few years at least.
