Metro to start operating next 12th July

Hello folks,

The metro system in Málaga will start operating next 12th July.

It consists on two lines (line 1 -red- and line 2 -blue-) which depart from the University area and the Palacio de Deportes respectively. Both arrive near Málaga María Zambrano central station in a station named "Perchel" on the metro network plan.

You can give a look to the map on the following link: metrodemalaga.info/uploads/media/Ampliar_ima…

This is a partial opening since the bulk of works are still being carried out on the last tranche which runs from the central station to nearby Atarazanas market, where this first phase of the metro network will end.

The purpose of the metro is to connect two of the most populated districts in the city (Teatinos and the western districts of Carretera de Cádiz and Parque Litoral) to the city centre, and as such, it will be of limited usefulness to our visitors.

Interesting spots now easily reachable by metro will be the Palacio de Deportes, where Unicaja basketball team plays and where many concerts and events as such as held and the Guadalhorce river nature park, which can be accessed on foot from the same station both on Line 2, and the courts offices and University which can be reached on Line 1.

The price of a single ticket is 1.35 euro and prepaid cards with lower fares are available.

The network is integrated with the metropolitan transport agency, which means that metro buses such as the popular M110 will share fares with the metro network. I haven't heard on any news regarding other integrations such as with the Cercanías train network or the municipal buses (EMT).

Hope this helps.

County Dublin...
