Metro is reliable and easy to use. People don´t push and let alight all passangers before entering the train. Even in rush hours it was still OK to go the with pram. Elevators are quite small, not all of the exits provide escalators or elevators.

The train stations may look confusing, but after studying the map and understanding how the trains connect, it is not that difficult after all. Signages were sufficiently put up and looks pretty clear if one understands English and chinese. The waiting time for trains is...More

Hi Maria, Not sure if there is a pass for just the subway, but we bought an Osaka amazing pass which covers all the subway lines & most attractions. 1 day pass 2,500¥, 2 day pass 3,300¥.
