Puerto Rico's largest infrastructure project--an 11-mile (17.6 km) metropolitan rapid-transit system known as the Tren Urbano--is North America's first comprehensive turnkey transit project. The rail line serves the most densely populated corridor of the island, linking the central business district to residential and employment areas in San Juan and neighboring communities. Stops are located at: Santurce, Hato Rey, Roosevelt, Domenech, Piñero, Universidad, Río Piedras, Cupey, Centro Médico, San Francisco, Las Lomas, Martínez Nadal, Torrimar, Jardines, Deportivo and Bayamón.
This system uses electric trains that can cruise 55 miles (88 km) an hour on dedicated guideways. The majority of the route is elevated, one long section is at ground level, and another is underground.
There are 16 passenger stations strategically located in commercial and residential areas with the highest population density and greatest traffic congestion.
Trains depart every 8 minutes during peak transit hours and every 10 to 12 minutes during other periods.
Estimated travel time from Bayamón to Santurce is 30 minutes.
The system has a total of 74 vehicles.
