Warsaw’s second metro line opened on March 8, with travel free for all on the inaugural day. The new line, which runs from west to east, passes below the River Vistula, taking in seven stops. It complements the existing north to south line, which opened in 1995.
The M2 line is expected to improve public transport for Warsaw’s 1.8 million residents. It took five years to build it and a cost of aproximately 4.2 billion zlotys (USD 1.1 billion).
