Moreover, this metropolitan system is proclaimed to be the second fastest one in the whole world, exceeded only by the Seoul Metro.

The metro is operated by its own company, controlled by the Department of Public Works, City Planning, and Transportation of the autonomous community of Madrid.

The system of Madrid’s subway may be divided into two networks: the small-profile network and the large-profile network. The small-profile network includes lines 1-5 and 11.
