"Mexico City Subway System" Metro Tip by chenglinlee

Metro, Mexico City: 43 reviews and 30 photos

Mexico City has the best subway system that I have ever used. It get you practically anywhere you want to go for about 2 pesos. That is less than 20 cents (US). The subway system is pretty easy to understand because they name of the subbway train indicates the last stop along the line that it is traveling on. Just make sure you pick up a subway map and i believe you will be able to understand it in less than 5 minutes. The tickets must be purchased at the taquillos before you enter the subway system. You purchase these little tickets that you put into a machine it permits you to enter. CAUTION: Please don't travel alone at night using the subway. It is dangerous. Take a cab instead. Better yet, travel in group.
