History metro in Barcelona began inthe end of 1924, when the city was opened on the first line of the Barcelona metro, which connects the station Lesseps and Catalunya in the city center. Two years later, the second line was opened on the eve of the World Expo - she joined the two railway lines in the city. Further development of the Barcelona metro was interrupted due to the outbreak of civil war in starne. Construction continued only in 1946 after the end of the 2nd World War.
Currently, Barcelona Metrois 11 lines, covering the Catalan capital and its suburbs, and 163 stations. The rapid transit system of Barcelona also included the funicular and tram lines and Trambaix Trambesòs, integrated with the underground.
The main problem of the metro stations in Barcelona -accessibility for wheelchairs and parents with prams. Many stations are not available, the prospects for resolving this issue is - a system of underground improved in projects to improve infrastructure, a large number of lifts from the street to the level of cash, then the level of banks to the platforms - today, many stations still do not have such access. Another problem of the Barcelona metro - poor air conditioning carriages, stations and crossings.
