HistoryEdit

On 30 October 2009, the whole network was reorganized, resulting in a lower number of lines operating with shorter headways.[5] The reorganization of the network was suggested by the Plan de Movilidad Sostenible, 'Sustainable Mobility Plan', aimed at improving traffic and mobility in the city.[citation needed] In October 2010, some changes to the network were made,[which?] with additional changes in September 2012 and February 2013.[citation needed] A tenth line was added to the network in 2015.[6]
