Buenos Aires Underground Metro

Buenos Aires Underground Metro

The Buenos Aires Underground also known as Subte. The first division of this network started in 1913.The network extended quickly during the early periods of the 20th century, but the stride of development fell suddenly after the Second World War. In the late 1990s development resumed, with the scheduling of four new lines. However, the rate of development is largely overdone by the transportation requirements of the city and once again the system has become overloaded. Presently, the underground network's has 6 lines comprise 53 kilometers (33 mi) of route, helping 83 stations
