Metro de Medellin - Empresa de Transporte Masivo del Valle de Aburrá Lda. - Metro de Medellín Ltda.

Colombian city Medellín's state-owned subway firm Metro de Medellin operates the city and outlying area's mass transit system. It was founded with the aim of building, administrating and operating the mass transport system, generating development and seeking to offer better living standards to all the inhabitants of the Aburrá valley, in which Medellín lies. The subway system consists of four subway lines and 55 stations: 27 stations forming Metro's lines A and B, and six stations making up Metrocable's line K and line J; two touristic stations in the Cable Arví línea L and 20 in the buses line 1. To form the company Metro de Medellín, the Medellín municipality and department of Antioquia became equal partners. Construction of the network by German and Spanish companies finally began in 1984. Commercial operations of the first stretch of track started November 30, 1995, and the two-line network was completed in 1996. After 15 years of operations, the subway accounts for 19.6% of the mass public transport market in its area of direct influence: Bello, Medellín, Itagüí, Envigado and Sabaneta. Metro de Medellin was founded in 1979 and is based in Bello in Colombia's Antioquia department.
