The Subte system or Buenos Aires metro boasts six lines — A, B, C, D, E and H as you can see in the Metro map Buenos Aires— with 86 stations that extend finger like from the area near the Plaza de Mayo and the Casa Rosado (yep, “The Pink House”, where the president lives). While, technically speaking, many of the metro lines in Buenos Aires intersect with each other, they only do so at the extreme eastern edge of the network. In land, only the C and H lines, which act like barriers to catch wayward tourists, have any chance of returning you to the line you want to be on should you lose your way. As such, vigilance is an important part of riding the Subte – especially since it is not always possible to change directions without paying for a new journey if you find yourself heading the wrong way.

There is a ‘P’ line, which intersects at the end of the E metro line. The P stands for PreMetro, which is a 7.4km tramway that runs along the outskirts of Buenos Aires as you can see in the Metro map Buenos Aires. While not technically part of the Subte subway network, it does appear on the map and passengers can use their Subte cards (basically an Oyster card) on both, as well as buses and other public transport. The architecture of the stations has been copied from the A line ever since its inauguration over 100 years ago, keeping the theme running across the entire network. Originally owned by the state, the Subte system was privatised in 1944, the same year that the E line was officially opened. The most recent metro line, H, was officially opened in 2007. Now, some 10 years later, it is due to be extended with an additional 20 trains running on the line.

Metro construction authority, Subterráneos de Buenos Aires SE (locally called Subte) is expanding the Buenos Aires metro system by adding three new lines (see the Metro map Buenos Aires), to bring 70% of the population within 400m of a metro station. As of early July 2009, the work on the lines has been halted due to lack of funds. There is uncertainty about when construction is going to resume. The network expansion, once complete, will allow an estimated one million more passengers to access this public service. This implies that 57% of the city’s residents will use this transport to move within its network.

Buenos Aires has Latin America oldest subway system; its first line opened in 1913 as its mentioned in Buenos Aires subway map. The subway was designed to accommodate the city in the mid-20th century, but its adequacy for a modern, bustling metropolis had diminished toward the end of the century. After the system was privatized in the early 1990s, however, many stations were refurbished and lines were repaired. The first new subway line built since the 1940s opened in 2007.

Recently, the city moved to an electronic card system, so instead of loose change, you’ll now need a SUBE card to travel on the bus and subway. You can buy a SUBE (pronounced “soo-beh”) from any one of the kiosks found on every corner in the city, or look out for a small blue sticker with SUBE written on it in kiosk or shop windows. Ask for a SUBE card (a simple 'un sube, por favor" will do if you are Spanish isn’t up to scratch) and top up the card using one of the machines in the kiosk or store. The card will set you back a few pesos and you will need a minimum of three pesos for any trip.
