IPTC INFO
CaptionThe first metro line was built in the early 1980's to relieve the city from increasing traffic problems and pollution. It runs mostly above ground along a former railway alignment from the city centre in the east towards the western suburbs and the bus station Rodoviária. An extension from Rodoviária to Timbi Camaragibe a town of almost 200 000 inhabitants 4.5 km opened in December 2002.The current length of the network is 25 km with 18 stations. The metro carries some 120 000 passengers a day. The line has broad gauge and is operated by Metrorec Metro Recife. The southern line towards Cabo is being upgraded for metro service as far as Cajueiro Seco 14 km - 12 stations. It will have direct access to the airport. At Shopping station a peoplemover will link the station to the shopping centre. Trains for the new line will have air-conditioning. The line was due to open in 2002 but due to financial problems the first four stations were only completed in February 2005. Direct transfer to buses with tariff integration is possible at Joana Bezerra Afogados Barro and Jaboatão. The remaining stretch of the southern line between Imbiribeira and Cajueiro Seco is expected to open in late 2006. The southern line from Cajueiro Seco to Cabo 18.5 km will also be double tracked and offer a 20-minute-headway with diesel units.
