Line one of the two line Fortaleza metro, or "Metrofor", opened in 2012. Both
lines are being converted from suburban railway standards to
metro, including a 4 km tunnel under the city. The first line will have
18 stations, the second 10. The Empressa (operating authority) also
mentions the construction of a 22 km cargo line which will share the
metro's tracks. When completed, the system is expected to have four lines and 62.8 km of track.
Plans for the city's 12.4 km Line 3 are in the advanced stages. Tunneling is scheduled to begin in 2014.
Fortaleza's Ramal Parangaba - Mucuripe 12.7 km light rail line is under construction and expected to open in 2014.
