ECUADOR DIGEST Quito's new Metro light rail system will open in 2016

Cuenca isn’t the only city in Ecuador building a light rail transportation system.

Quito’s Metro Tram project broke gorund in March and is scheduled to open its first metro line by mid 2016. A total investment of $1.4 billion USD, the project will be financed by the City of Quito, the Ecuadorian Government and several international financing sources.


  1. I think Quito Metro will be operational by 2017, not by 2016. The construction works for the 22km-long Line 1 of the metro system just started in January 2013.
