Check the timetable

We have a website page for each Metro station that lets you know when the next Metro is arriving, while all timetables are listed there too.

We also have a handy Pop app that enables you to check real time train information, while Twitter can be used to see any service disruptions. You can also sign up for travel alerts so you'll be the first to know of any changes to the timetable.

Follow the Metro Map

You'll see our famous yellow and green Metro route map everywhere on our stations and trains. You can also find it on our website. It's an easy-to-follow guide showing where our services can take you and any places you can change to jump on another line.
