Santo Domingo Metro becomes ‘too little’ for demand
Santo Domingo.- The Santo Domingo Metro’s 48.5 kilometers of tracks don’t meet the daily demand of commuters looking for a fast, comfortable, cheap and safe transport.
From 7 to 9am and 5 to 8pm chaos reigns in the busiest stations, while the commuter transfer at the John F. Kennedy and Maximo Gomez station, pushing and shoving is the norm to board the trains.
“The Metro is already becoming too little for us,” warns the straphanger Freddy Núñez, who was sitting in a train, a privilege in “rush hour.”
Quoted by eldia.com.do, the commuter said a few days ago he had to wait for three trains to pass before boarding a car on Line 2.
