    I'd choose just about anything to avoid that final hour to go the last 12 km from the outskirts to the bus station in SD traffic. If I can get close faster, a shorter Uber ride is always welcome.
    Google maps. Type in "Santo Domingo Metro"

    Exactly why I get off the bus at kilometer 9 and opt for Caribe Tours vs Metro. Metro autobus is a nicer, more comfortable ride but as mentioned it won't stop at kilometer 9. I remember one time that Metro bus took 45 minutes to make it down Winston Churchill to get to the bus depot, never again.

    This may help in conjunction with the Google Maps.

    please note the maps have not been updated to include the Line 2B stops.

    This is kilometro 9 (photos courtesy of the internet). I call it chaos central. If you arrive around rush hour you will understand why. The round building is the Metro Subway Station. Maria Montez, it is the first/last stop so no need to concern yourself with which direction to go. You also have a very good chance of getting a seat on the subway.

    From here Line 2 makes stops along JFK, Pedro Mir (Agora Mall/IKEA) being one of them. You can take Line 2 and transfer to Line 1 for stops up and down Maximo Gemez.

    Remember Metro Autobus does NOT stop here. Caribe Tours or one of the other transport services mentioned in the OP is the way to go.

    maps.google.com shows the Metro stations with a bluish square with a white M in it. Google maps are okay, but show inaccurate political boundaries, so Mapquest is more authoritative. Consider that http://senaduriasantiago.com/provincia-de-santiago/ denotes that Puñal is in Provincia Santiago, but Google puts her town hall in Provincia Espaillat. No can do.

    station / stop while using a map with inaccurate political boundaries
