Mexico City (“DF”) Subway

I have to write a little post about the subway in Mexico City. And I have to do this because I just wanted it OUT THERE, on the internet, that this is an excellent subway system, so easy that our 6 year old learned how to navigate it.

5 pesos a ride, anywhere.

Trains come every few minutes.

It goes all over the place.

Picture icons are used as well as colour coding and script. Definitely helpful for those who can’t read and/or for whom reading Spanish isn’t easy.

Stations with archaeological relics and art.

Also: a carriage at the end of trains just for women and children.

And: stations with secure bicycle parking and ramps up the stairs for bikes.

The only thing it needs is consistent disability access and it will be set.

PS

Mexico City has adopted a bike share program that is similar (or the same?) as what we saw in Paris. We saw the bikes all over the place. Definitely a rad option
