Metro Mexico City provides service to more than 1.647 million 475 thousand 13 users a year, operating since 1969 for about 20 continuous hours. Schedules vary from Monday to Friday and Saturday to Sunday as follows:

Monday to Friday: 5:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight
Saturdays: 6:00 to 24:00 hours
Sundays and holidays: 7:00 a.m. to midnight

Even though Metro stations close at 00:00 hours, the last train may run from 24:00 to 00:30 hours, since each station has a specific period.

In distinctive celebrations of the capital of the country, such as concerts, parades, or recreational activities, the government of Mexico City implements special schedules for the benefit of the user for a safe return home.

To be aware of the special schedules of the Mexico City Subway, we recommend you stay alert to the official website of the Collective Transportation System.

What is the schedule of the Metrobus Mexico City?

While the Metro has an extension of 226 kilometers between the capital of the country and the State of Mexico, the Metrobus currently covers 125 kilometers with its 6 lines.

Thus, the Metrobus serves the needs of 11 delegations of the country's capital, positioning itself as an excellent transportation alternative.

Unlike the Mexico City Metro, the Metrobus starts 30 minutes earlier for all early risers and ends at 24:00 hours.

Summary of the Mexico City Metrobus schedules:

Monday to Saturday: 04:30 to 24:00 hours.
Sundays and holidays: from 05:00 to 24:00 hours

It should be clarified that the cost of the Metrobus is 6 pesos, that is to say, its fare is one peso higher than that of the Mexico City Subway. Meanwhile, transfers will not have any extra cost for the user, since when doing so you only have to present the card in the electronic reader and the screen will show the legend "transfer", which means that no additional balance will be deducted from the card.
