Description:
The Teresina Metro (Portuguese: Metrô de Teresina, commonly called Metrô) in Teresina, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Piauí, is operated by CMTP (Metropolitan Public Transport Company). It is 14.5 km (8.4 mi) long with a daily ridership of about 5,000.

History

The Teresina Metro was inaugurated on 15 August 1989, with the objective of establishing a high-capacity transport for the urban agglomeration of Teresina. The works were initiated at the end of 1989.

To reduce costs of the system, the project uses the existing metre gauge rail line, which cuts Teresina. It was placed into a cut in the centre of the city, to reduce interference with road traffic. It adopted diesel train-sets sponsored by RFFSA, who covered the stretch between Porto Alegre and Uruguayana, which has the metre gauge track.Line 1 of the subway entered into trial operation in November 1990, and was launched commercially on 5 June, 1991. A new station in construction the city centre should increase usage to 10,000 passengers daily.

System characteristics

The system consists of a total length of 12.5 km. Eight stations formed mostly by surface track. Diesel trains are running on a single track line with 1000 mm gauge, traveling at an average speed of 30 km/h. One of the train sets has been completely modernised in 2006.
