Granada Metro Figures

Granada's Metro reached a new record for users during 2023 with 14,180,797 in passenger traffic.

That’s a 28% increase over 2022 and a 21% over 2019. Obviously, 2020 with the pandemic was not included.

Junta bigwig, Rocío Díaz, pointed out that the Metro de Granada was going through a fantastic moment in its existence, not only because of the increase in the number of passengers it handles, but also because the metro system is about to receive new trams/trains which will increase the frequency of trains arriving at platforms, as well as the line extensions (Prolongación Sur) which will reach Churriana de la Vega and Las Gabias.

On work days the metro transports  44,396 passengers on average and 27,245 on weekends. In fact, the last quarter of last year, there were 4,239,416 travellers between the 1st of October and the 31st of December – the best figures to date.

Obviously, when we say 4,239,416 travellers we’re not talking about people as such but rather tickets sold, as the same person probably uses the service scores of times during a year. For instance, the busiest day last year was the 15th of December when 65,104 fares were recorded.

As for the busiest stop, it was Recogidas, which handled 12% of the traffic, followed by Sierra Nevada, (8%), and Méndez Núñez (7%).

Editorial comment: you must be bored with this article, dear reader, because I certainly am, so I won’t torment you further with more statistics.
