The metro had started its official operation back on 25th of April 2007 when the M1 line was opened for the public attention. The line covers around 7.2 kilometers of route and consists of 9 stations: Plaça d'Espanya (Intermodal station), Son Fortesa / Son Costa, Jacint Verdaguer, Camí dels Reis, Son Sardina (surface station), Son Castelló, UIB (University of the Balearic Islands), Gran Via Asima, Son Fuster Vell. It takes around 15 to 30 minutes to get from the 1st station of the M1 line to the last one. Normally M1 line starts its operation early in the morning around 06:57 and ends at 20:02 during the week and from 07:20 to 02:55 on Saturdays.
Afterwards, another M2 metro line was added in March 2013, the line now covers 8,35 kilometers of route and consists of 10 stations: Jacint Verdaguer, Plaça d'Espanya (Intermodal station), Son Fortesa / Son Costa, Son Cladera/Es Vivero, Marratxí, Pont d'Inca, Pont d'Inca Nou, Verge de Lluc, Son Fuster, Polígon Marratxí.
