Tunis's metro system
Tunisia has a metro station located just outside of the capital. Everyone speaks about the metro, but don't be misled; it's essentially a light rail system. It indicates it won't go underground save for a few small tunnels and appears like a tram. The first line opened in 1985, while the latter two lines, lines 4 and 6, opened in 2008-2009. A metro ticket costs around 0.40 DT (0.10snt), and the metro is often easier to use than buses. Just be careful not to miss your stop and keep an eye on your valuables. I urge that travelers use taxes. When it comes to public transportation, it is the cheapest, fastest, and most comfortable option.
