Very easy to use, very clean and efficient, was a great way to get around town. The only unfortunate part is that the reach of the system is somewhat limited. We used it to get to Albrook in order to catch a bus to David.

When we were there a few weeks ago it was due to open in a couple of weeks! Building works seldom go to plan, I think it is now due to be opened on 28th January 2019 now. Happy travels.

Panama has only one line on their Metro system. It does not run as far as the Panama Canal. Like a previous TA contributor stated you will have to use another form of transportation.
