“Regular line of Subway”

“Enjoyed all Buenos Aires subways”
This is probably the neatest blast-to-the-past subway ride you’ll ever take. The A Line was the first subte line built here. It still uses rollicking old wooden trains. Jump on, and feel the breeze blowing through its open windows when it’s warm.

I master the subways and life in the city is good. The maps have the subway lines on them. In Portugal the maps do not. So if maps are marked it's great. Go enjoy the oldest subway in South America.

Riding the subway (Subte) in Buenos Aires is easy and convenient. Our B&B host provided us with prepaid cards to use as we travelled. Besides the efficiency in travel, the artwork in some of the stations is worth a look.

The Subte underground train network in Buenos Aires is a highlight. It provides convenient, cheap and generally clean carriages and access to the core areas of the city. Some of the lines now run air conditioned carriages which certainly is a help in the summer....More

Not only does the subway (subte) get you from one place to the other easily, it offers artwork and ambiance as you travel. I found the mosaics on the walls interesting and beautifully done.
