AFTER passing testing, lines 1 and 2 of the Malaga metro will be opened for service starting Saturday, 12 July 2014.

Lines 1 and 2 will bring passengers from Jose Maria Martin Carpena stadium in the southwest, as well as from the university campus, to the main railway station.

A single ride on the metro will cost passengers €1.35, though various discounts are available including a family discount, and a frequent travel discount ‘bonometro’ which lowers the price to €0.82.

It is anticipated that of the three million projected subway users, half will purchase frequent travel passes.

Service will run from 6:30am to 11pm nightly, though on Fridays and night before holidays the night schedule will be extended to 1:30am.

In the case of major events such as Malaga’s August fair, Easter week, as well as major cultural or sporting events, users can also expect increased service.

On Sundays and holidays service will start at 7am.
