It went from under the Puerta del Sol in the center of the city up 3.48 kilometers north to Cuatro Caminos. A century later, the fledgling underground transport system of a measly eight stations boasts 12 lines and 302 stations, spanning 294 kilometers.

It has always run on electrciity, even long before saving our Planet via the clean-air route has become an urgent task!
