ON NOVEMBER 7 Málaga metro counted thirty million travellers since its opening on July 30, 2014. The concessionary company Metro de Málaga expects to close the year with seven million users, some 700,000 more than the previous year.
One of the reasons that the metro line is getting such a high number of customers could be that more and more students of the Teatinos campus are renting flats in Carretera de Cádiz, where they find cheaper prices and a direct line to the University, with a journey time of only between 15 and 20 minutes thanks to the subway. Testimonials of students revealed that they found that in choosing to live in Teatinos near the university, the rent was on an increase and had jumped from €200 to around €330 per month within only a couple of years. Living in an area such as La Paz they can have a shared apartment for €200 with only a short metro journey.
