Major public transportation options in Mexico City

El Metro (subway, underground):

NETWORK MAP: Link to downloadable PDF

Work days: 5:00 to 24:00 hrs

Saturdays: 6:00 to 24:00 hrs

Sundays and holidays: 7:00 to 24:00 hrs
TICKETS: Cost $5.00 m.n. (pesos) per trip (free for older persons, persons with disabilities and children under five years old)

Tickets can be purchased at booths. STC Metro rechargeable cards were first available for an initial cost of MXN $10.00. The card would be recharged at the ticket counter in any station (or at machines in some Metro stations) to a maximum of MXN $120.00 (around € 6.44, or US$ 7.05 in 2015) for 20 trips.

n an attempt to modernize public transport, in October 2012 the Mexico City government implemented the use of a prepaid fare card, or stored-value card, called Tarjeta DF (Tarjeta del Distrito Federal, literally Federal District Card) as a payment method for STC Metro, Metrobús and the city's trolleybus and light rail systems, though they are all managed by different organisations.[26] Servicio de Transportes Eléctricos manages both the Xochimilco Light Rail line and the city's trolleybus system. Previous fare cards that were valid only on STC Metro or Metrobús remained valid for the system for which they were acquired.[27]

DANGERS AND ANNOYANCES: Pickpockets and purse snatchers rove the metro, particularly when they are crowded. Watch your pockets, valuables, purses, "kangureras" (belly packs). Groping of women can be a problem; look for rail cars set aside for women.
El Metrobús(express trolley bus - high accessibility level)



SYSTEM MAP (accessible stations indicated):


One trip cost: $6.00 m.n. Transfers are included between lines 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 as long as your trip is in one direction and is completed within two hours.

Trip cost between MEX international airport terminals 1 or 2 and City: $30.00 m.n.

You may purchase MB tickets or Tarjeta de Ciudad de México / CDMX, available at the stations. Machines do not give change.

Machine instructions here, and here for newer machines (Castilian Spanish).
