Monterrey, one of the most important cities in Mexico, has a public transport system consisting of a light rail system and a complementary network of buses (metrobus and transmetro/premetro).
Monterrey Metro system is commonly known as Metrorrey. It's official name in Spanish is Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metrorrey.
MetroRrey goes through the city from NorthEast to East (line 1) and from North to South (line 2). MetroRrey is composed of just 2 lines and 31 stations. Both metro lines are managed by Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metrorrey. Length of the whole system is about 20 miles (32kms). Most part of this system goes elevated. More than 60 millions passengers use MetroRrey every year.
There is a third line currently under a proyection phase that will link Monterrey, San Nicolás y Apodaca Line 3 would be 7.5 kms long and would have 9 stations, spanning from the Line 2 terminus at General Zaragoza northeast to Hospital Metropolitano, mostly elevated. Stations: Hospital Metropolitano Station, Los Ángeles Station, Ruiz Cortines Station, Conchello Station, Violeta Station, Félix U. Gómez Station, Adolfo Prieto Station and Santa Lucia Station. Government estimates that this line 3 will serve 280,000 passengers/day. This line could be ready in August 2015.
On Sundays the entrance is free.

The system operates from 05:00 to 00:00. Frequency is about 3.5 minutes during peak times.
MetroBus: Complementary transport system in the city, used under a unified ticket. Same ticket can be used for Metrobus cars and MetroRrey. You can use one of its 5 urban routes to access any metro station and also MetroRrey fare is included. MetroRrey and MetroBus schedule is the same: from Monday to Sunday, from 5:00 a.m to 12:00 a.m. Fare: $12.00
Transmetro or Premetro and metroEnlace, are other complementary systems to MetroRrey network. There is no additional fee, other than the standard Metro Ticket to use Transmetro.
There are two international airports in Monterrey: General Mariano Escobedo International Airport and Del Norte International Airport, both located in Apodaca. The best way to get to the city is by taxi, always insisting on the use of meter. Thought MetroRrey is a young and modern economic transport system its coverage is not really great.
