Mexico City’s Metro Line 1 is slated to reopen for service on Monday, Jan. 25, Fernando Espino, head of the Metro Workers Union (STM) said Tuesday, Jan. 19.

“If all goes well, we will be able to offer a reduced service with 10 trains, so long as this does not pose a danger (to the Metro system, workers or users),” Espino said in an interview with Grupo Formula.

Trains will run about every nine to 10 minutes, he said.

Espino explained that the Line 1 route, which runs from Observatorio to  Pantitlán, normally operates with 38 trains.

He likewise noted that the projected re-initiation of service for Line 2 (which runs from Cuatro Caminos to Tasqueña) and Line 3 (which runs from Indios Verdes to Universidad) will also be partial.

Capital Metro service was disrupted along several lines by a fire at a subway control station on Saturday, Jan. 9.

The government is currently investigating the cause of that fire.
