The Panama Metro is the mass transport of passengers in the city, which joins different areas, with high capacity and frequency to other transport systems. Daily transporting more than 42 thousand passengers with 26 trains, however for WYD, Metro Line 2 expects to serve more than 58 thousand passengers in five stations: Corredor Sur, Pedregal, San Antonio, Cinquantenaire and San Miguelito.
