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.
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
