I’ve discovered why there are no Metro Cards on sale. I think. I’ve noticed over the last week that more and more stations are being equipped with little machines that dispense and recharge metro cards. None of them, as of yet, actually work of course. Soon, hopefully….
But the Metro hasn’t stopped there in it’s on going program of modernisation. They’ve also been busy building at Taxquena and Cuatro Caminos and probably elsewhere. Building lots of little cabin sized retail outlets. I have to say I wasn’t convinced they’d get much take up. I mean, why would someone want to pay the Metro money for renting a shop when they could just set up an ambulante store a few metres further on? It’s not like McDonald’s or other high street establishments are going to open up in these huts, are they? I was wrong…..
