Valparaiso Metro

Valparaiso Metro Information

The Valparaiso Metro service, also referred to as the Merval network, is the subway transport service that serves the urban conglomeration in the Gran Valparaiso district in Chile. This transport network serves as a connection between the Chilean cities of Limache, Villa Alemana, Quilpue, Viña del mar and Valparaiso. The service was inaugurated around a decade ago, in November of 2005 and started full-fledged operations the following day. Between the Recreo and Puerto stations, the system runs along the Pacific Coast at street level and offers exquisite views of the surroundings. Subsequently, the trains make a descent into the tunnels that run below the Alvarez and Viana Avenues, featuring four underground stations. They make an exit at El Salto- an industrial district- before proceeding to the metropolitan hinterland along a winding route. Valparaiso Metro reported an annual ridership of 20.2 million as in 2013.
