Cariri
light rail

Adjacent to Fortoleza and being developed by Metrofor is the Cariri metro, a 13.6 km diesel light rail line which will utilize mostly existing abandoned trackage and opened in Aust 2009. The line serves the towns of Crato and Juazeiro do Norte in the Cariri region.  Although referred to as a Metro, it more resembles a regional light rail line similar to the River Line in New Jersey. All sections will be above ground. The operating authority, the Caerense Metropolitan Transportation Authority, is now working on a norther branch which will integrate with the new line. The two branches line, known as the
Metro Sobral, is expected to be 11 kn long.
