MEXICO CITY — A big chunk of the population is going to be heading to Mexico’s capital city, Mexico City, on the next leg of their travels.
On Thursday, the first of four planned train services will begin with the first train, an 8:15 a.m. train to the city’s train station.
It’s a rare glimpse into the country’s first subway line, which opened in 2011 and is currently operated by Mexico City-based Metrolink and the state-run Metro.
MEXICO City, which sits on the Pacific Ocean at the edge of the United States, is an international city, but it’s not without its own problems.
On Tuesday, a small plane crashed on a runway at the city airport.
In February, a man named Luis Felipe Ortiz Jr. was killed when a jetliner struck a bus.
It was the third fatal crash in the capital in as many years.
The country’s tourism sector has been plagued by safety problems, including a string of fatal crashes, including the July 2014 crash of a passenger jet near the U.S. border that killed 39 people and injured dozens more.
Mexico City is also known as “El Chapo City,” which is shorthand for “El Guapo.”
