Lima Metro

Lima Metro Information

Referred to as the El Tren Electrico by residents of Lima, the Lima Metro service is a metropolitan railway network that links the central districts of the capital city of Peru to the southern fringes. Although it was initially planned in the year 1980, numerous political issues held up work and the service became fully operational only in 2011. The twenty-two kilometer long mainline runs along sixteen stations although plans are in place for an extension of the network.

Lima Metro Information

Line 1 of the Lima Metro network starts its journey from the Villa El Salvador Industrial Park in south Lima and continues on through Villa Maria del Triunfo (Av. Pachacutec station) and San Juan de Miraflores (Av. Los Heroes) to reach the Lima City Center (Av. Grau station). Along the way, it touches the regions of Av. Tomas Marsano, Ov. Los Cabitos and Av. Aviacion.

Plans are in place to extend the existing line by another twelve kilometers with the introduction of ten new stations. This will help complete the entire thirty-four kilometer stretch of Line 1 of the Lima Metro project. Work is in progress for the construction of many more lines around the city to make the Metro service the most viable means of commute for the local people. At present, though, it will only be beneficial if you have to travel somewhere close to its limited range of service.
