Mexico City has the infrastructure to travel by car, bicycle, bus, helicopter, whatever you want. But one of the best options to travel around the city is undoubtedly the subway.
In 1969 the subway was inaugurated in Mexico City. The first route was to the east of the city from Zaragoza to Chapultepec downtown. It was one of the most efficient and cleanest options offered by the city. With the passing of time and the needs of the population, the metro grew to what we know today. Here we review how many routes it has and where they pass through.
