World Metro Figures 2018

September 2018
  • Modes & capacity increases

For this new metro Statistics Brief UITP has collected exhaustive data for a series of key indicators for all metros in the world including ridership, number of lines, network length, number of stations and – new for this edition – fleet size. Extensive data was also collected for another new field: infrastructure construction model (underground, elevated, at grade or in trench).

The data and analysis presented in this UITP Statistics Brief are a snapshot of a more in-depth, granular analysis of the underlying trends in the construction and operation of metro systems worldwide. This in-depth report also contains an extensive dataset highlighting, for each of the metro systems operational at the end of 2017, the following annual data points:
• Year of system opening
• Number of metro lines in operation for the previous five years
• The length of lines in operation for the previous five years
• The number of metro stations for the previous five years
• The number of passengers carried by the metro system for the previous five years
• The number of metro carriages used by the system for the last available year
