Dominican Republic’s Metro a big hit – Pricing still in the air
This holiday season is filled with the excitement of the Santo Domingo Metro. The Metro’s unofficial inauguration was celebrated by their government allowing passengers to ride the Metro for free throughout the holiday season.
Hoy reports that taking a ride on the SD has become somewhat of a family outing with families happily riding the train and enjoying the novelty of the Metro system. Though there has been much debate about the cost and need of the Metro it was the furthest thing from passenger’s minds.
Transport Reorganization Office (OPRET) director Diandino Pena and sub director Leonel Carrasco also rode the Metro during the first free night. A ride from Villa Mella to Centro de los Heroes, which takes around an hour by car, now takes 20 minutes.
