Full Metro, Cable Railway, Light
Rail under construction
Opened in 1983, the mostly underground Caracas Metro consists of four
lines, 70.5 km and 48 stations. The system's existence and success is
attributed to a Venezuelan transportation engineer, Jose
Gonzalez-Lander. Most importantly of all, you can ride the
metro for free on Sunday,
The Gaurenas Metro
A 6.7 km subway line known as the Guarenas metro is currently under
construction. When complete, riders will connect at the terminus with a
31 km light rail line, also under construction, to the town of Guatire.
Half the route will be underground. The line has been described as both a metro and a light rail line and, according to Wikipedia, is partially both..
New extensiions are already planned.
Opening date is scheduled for 2012.
This funicular style people mover connects metro Lines 1 and 4. The 2.1 km line serves 5 stations and is elevated/
Metro De Los Teques
Because of it's location, we have treated this as a seperate metro
system with its own page. However, it is run by CAMetro just as the
Caracas metro and the Guaranas metro. It can also be accessed
Line 4's southern terminal in Las Adjuntas. (The Guaranta metro will be
accessable to riders from Line 1's Parque Del Este station.) Go look
for consistency with metros and metro fans. You won't find it.
There are also plans to have Dopplelmeyer build a metro style
cableliner in Caracas. The line would be approximately 14 km with 5
stations and would be totally elevated.
