    Default Santo Domingo Metro - more work

    Obviously i was wrong as I thought additional work on improving the Metro would not happen in the near future. Seems as if works as already in motion. Time schedule could very well be another thing but it's happening. I ride the Metro quite often and it is standing room only most times and rush hour just forget it as you are lucky if can be the last sardine crammed in the cars............. GO METRO .......

    I know grill man, but there are a few of us who do so I try to keep them posted. Plus, I like posting positive stuff especially when at one point in time there were so many know it all dr1 posters who said the Metro would fail, Agora Mall would fail, Sambil would fail........... etc. Pichardo probably somewhere laughing his little rear end off.

    SD is cool, if you like big city living ............ that is with one major exception - the traffic.

    Basically making the terminal buildings a little longer to handle more cars in each train.

    On a related note, they've already started on the second cable car from Los Alcarizzos to Ave. Luperon.

    Anybody who travels that route knows what a major PITA the conchos are on that route.

    The new cable car route will put a huge dent in that traffic jam.

    I do occasionally. As a kid I rode the Boston subway everywhere with a very open transfer policy. The Santo Domingo Metro is a major asset for a congested city.

    ...........
    I think Pichardo had mentioned that way back but the plan was to see how many daily riders will use the Metro. Most likely a limit to how often you can have them run as the bottle neck would be the last station on both ends. You have to wait for a train to get in, unload and reload and come back out the station.

    I am not familiar with the new Teleferico route but if you find a map please post. At luperon is Teleferico #2 going to connect with Metro Line 2?
