SOME PICTURES OF PUERTO RICO
PUERTO RICO METRO SYSTEM (TREN URBANO)
Awesome finally someone to represent the PR! Do you have more pics that you could share? I'm really interested in seeing some pics of the business/financial district. Pics of the CBD are very hard to find!

Nice pics. Puerto Rico is more developed than I thought. Im guessing thats San Juan right?
yes that is San Juan, but there are a few towns in Puerto Rico that are more developed and are starting to look just like San Juan. example Guaynabo City, and the town of Carolina. Carolina is where the international airport is at. alot of people dont even know that. but Carolina and Guaynabo are part of the Metro area.
So then San Juan has a heavy rail system? wow, that's outstanding. Is tourism Puerto Rico's main industry?
this is a picture of the town of Guaynabo---best known as Guaynabo City
yes San Juan has a heavy rail system it was innagurated a year ago, it only has 16 stations by now but it'll be expanded soon. and NO Puerto Rico's main industry is not tourism any more, the main industry in Puerto Rico is the pharmaceutical,
I will post more images of the rail system in the future, we called it the (TREN URBANO) or urban train
and look they have a metro card like the subway in New York,
these are three of the stations.

All of PR,not just the San Juan Greater Metropolitan Area is just like the US.Very developed,lotta people from the US don't know this but its true.

I love the "tren urbano". It's stations are so modern and full of art.
I haven't take a trip on it yet lol, but I will soon ... I hope

BTW how much money did it cost to build the system there?
Posted September 1, 2006
Its cost was about $2.3 billion dollars.Phase 2 will start around 2008 and will cost approximately $900 million more.

Wow! hmm i wonder how much the possible light rail in Honolulu will cost. So far there's a green light and some rough estimates but i know that it will probably cost more then they are saying once they get started.
Light rail are way cheaper...there are plans for making a light rail system in Carolina and another one for Caguas,both suburbs of San Juan.

Excellent i hope that it works out because it surely has the population to support a large transportation system like that.
There are plans to make a light rail system in Old San Juan too,I forgot about that.I think the Old San Juan one will work but I'm not sure about the Caguas and Carolina LRSs...
I'm sure that the Carolina extension will work great. There's a lot of people that lives in Carolina and work in San Juan ... and the airport is in Carolina too ...
by the other side, there's no need of an extension to Caguas ... not yet.
The Tren Urbano extension to Carolina will work but I"m not sure about the Light Rail in Carolina.DreamerGuy,roads/streets in PR are horrible,too many curves and stuff like that so I'm not sure itll work.

y me lo dices a mi xDDDD
Oh man, don't get me started on the condition of some roads in Puerto Rico! You know what REALLY ticks me off? The metal plates they're using to patch holes on some bridges of Highway 22. It's a TOLL Highway! That money they charge is to maintain the entire highway in perfect condition. Not doing sloppy patch jobs like that. But as the saying goes: "Si votaste POPULAR, te lo tienes que CHUPAR". As for the light eail line to Caguas....they desperately need it. Has anyone been on Highway 52 (Luis A. Ferre) on rushhour? It's a parking lot. Unbelievable. The lightrail to Old San Juan will only reach just beyond the Capitol Building. It won't go into Old San Juan proper. I thinks it's because Old San Juan streets are so narrow, there wouldn't be enough space to make turns. Although there used to be trollys, the light rail to Old San Juan will probably have 2 to 4 cars. Perhaps a full underground system is the way to go.
An underground system for OLd San Juan is the best option but it would cost billions and the Government doesn't want to do it.They say its too expensive.Oye Dreamer,ven para aca,el area Oeste,te aseguro que esta PEOR que el este.Esto aca es lo mas olvidado que hay.Alla en Juncos tienen expreso,aqui ni eso.
Posted September 5, 2006
Eso si hay que agradecer, que Juncos esta conectado con Humacao y Caguas por expresso.
Ahora con lo de los juegos del 2010 le van a meter mas dinero al area oeste, en especial a Mayaguez. Ya era hora que invirtieran en infraestructura alla! La verdad que si los tenian olvidado.
El area oeste es una joya, las playas, sus recursos naturales, historia y cultura etc. Pueden explotar muy bien el turismo, pero necesitan que el gobierno aporte (lo mas dificil).
Juncos esta cerquita de San Juan,es mas hasta se puede contar parte del Area Metro de San Juan.
