» Metro


The Metro’s A and B lines traverse the city north to south and east to west covering much of the Aburrá Valley in a short time. The system’s 27 stations offer the possibility to transfer to other means of transportation, including cable cars, and public bicycles, which makes for a flexible system to reach various areas of the city.

» Bus lines
Líneas de buses

Rapid transit buses, some articulated, travel over dedicated traffic lanes or mixed-traffic lanes. The vehicles, running on gas, connect downtown areas with residential and industrial centers as well as several Metro stations. Hours: 4:30 a. m. to 11:00 p. m. Routes link several Metro stations.

» Metrocable

Three gondola-type cable-car lines crisscross the skies of Medellín connecting residential areas and otherwise difficult-to-access nature spots in a short time. The Metrocable interconnects with the Metro and, very soon, two new lines will join the Tranvía de Ayacucho or Streetcar with the city’s east-central hills. The route, the stations, and the nearby areas serve as lookout terraces to view the Aburrá Valley.

» Streetcar
San Cristóbal

Modern streetcars traverse the 2.7-mile route between downtown and the Alejandro Echavarría neighborhood in the east of Medellín. From here two Metrocable lines will climb to neighborhoods in Comunas 8 (Villa Hermosa) and 9 (Buenos Aires). The streetcar line, starting at the San Antonio Metro station, also connects with Bus line 2 at the San José stop.
