The Mexico City Metro provides mass transit transportation to large areas of the Mexican Federal District. It was the world's first metro system to identify its stations by means of symbols. It is also one of the cheapest – a ticket from any station to any other currently costs a mere MXN $2.00 (EUR 0.13 or USD 0.19).
