Connecting at Centro de los Heroes and heading to Hania, that most likely wouldn't go near to Bella Vista. Instead it would potentially serve all of the communities between Parque Mirador Sur and the Malecon unless it's express to Haina. Sounds like an awesome idea to me - even if it is a pipe dream at this moment. It certainly has potential to help alleviate the crushing tapones in this city.

There is a huge influx from Haina, Hatillo and especially San Cristobal every day. I suspect not as big as Los Alcarrizos but still very substantial

I remember when there were protests against the metro. How things change.
