The subway of Seville surpassed 14 million passengers again in 2012 (Spain)User numbers of the Seville metro (Metro de Sevilla) show that transport demand is still very high, despite the economic crisis which has also affected the public transport sector.
Metro de Sevilla transported more than 14 million passengers in 2012, surpassing for the second year in a row the volume of estimated demand of the initial studies. The stations Puerta Jerez, San Bernardo and Nervión, all three located in the capital Seville, had the highest number of passengers, concentrating in these three stations nearly 30% of the total demand.
Line 1 of the subway had exactly 14,029,418 passengers, which is a slight decline of 6% compared with 2011. However it is still a very satisfying number taking into account the context of the economic crisis, the general decline of consumption and the minor public transport use in Spain.
The Metro de Sevilla registered its highest use during the April Fair, when on April 25th a total of 131,462 passengers used the public transport system. The April Fair and the Easter week account for a total of 1.85 million trips.
