 METROPOLITANA

Similar to Naples' Metropolitana FS (Line 2), a metro-like service is operated in Palermo. This service is currently being upgraded creating a 'Passante Ferroviario' between Roccella and the airport, which will eventually be complemented with a circular route around the city centre (integrating the existing branch to Giachery).

17 Feb 2016: Lolli, Guadagna & Maredolce stations opened
