The Caracas Metro (Spanish:Metro de Caracas) is a mass rapid transit system serving Caracas, Venezuela. It was constructed and is operated by Compañía Anónima Metro de Caracas, a government-owned company that was founded in 1977 by José González-Lander who headed the project for more than thirty years since the early planning stages in the 1960s. Its motto is "Somos parte de tu vida" (translated as "We are part of your life").
The Caracas Metro currently has the following lines in operation:
These lines were built between 1978 and 2006, please note Line 2 has 4 terminal stations.
Part of Line 2 was constructed as Line 4, only after its inauguration it was renamed as Line 2. Also one must transfer on Line 3 at El Valle station to continue the ride.
Construction of the first phase of Line 4 (now officially renamed line 2) started in 2001; this line runs parallel to Line 1 to the south, and connects Plaza Venezuela station on Line 1 with Capuchinos station on Line 2. It is expected to provide much needed relief to congestion along this segment of Line 1 where most of Metro's ridership is concentrated.
Caracas (Spanish pronunciation:[kaˈɾakas]), officially Santiago de León de Caracas, is the capital, the center of the Greater Caracas Area, and the largest city of Venezuela. Caracas is located along the Guaire River in the northern part of the country, following the contours of the narrow Caracas Valley on the Venezuelan coastal mountain range (Cordillera de la Costa). Terrain suitable for building lies between 760 and 910m (2,490 and 2,990ft)above sea level. The valley is close to the Caribbean Sea, separated from the coast by a steep 2,200m (7,200ft) high mountain range, Cerro El Ávila; to the south there are more hills and mountains.
The album was awarded 4 stars in an Allmusic review by Alex Henderson who states "Caracas was recorded in 1993, but it sounds like it could have been recorded 30 years earlier. Regardless, this CD is excellent... Is Caracas essential? Not quite, but it's still a highly rewarding album that will please die-hard soul-jazz enthusiasts".
