Tren Urbano

The Tren Urbano (English: Urban Train), is a 10.7-mile (17.2 km) fully automated rapid transit that serves the metropolitan area of San Juan in Puerto Rico, and has stops in the municipalities of San Juan, Bayamón and Guaynabo. It is electrified by third rail at 750 V DC. The Tren Urbano consists of 16 stations along a single line.

The Tren Urbano complements other forms of public transportation on the island such as the public bus system, taxis, water ferries and shuttles. The entire mass transportation system has been dubbed the “Alternativa de Transporte Integrado” (Integrated Transportation Alternative) or “ATI”. Tren Urbano is also the Caribbean’s first rapid transit system.

Tren Urbano is currently made up of one rapid transit route. It consists of 16 stations, ten of which are elevated, four at grade or in open cuttings, and two underground. All stations are designed to handle three permanently coupled pairs (6 vehicles). The stations in the system are:

Each of the 16 stations boasts unique artwork and architectural style.

A maintenance depot and operations control center is located halfway along the route, between Martínez Nadal station and Torrimar station.
