Supply/Demand data 2011
The following tables show some figures about the two kinds of public transport supply: railway and buses. It should be noted that while the network length of railway networks is counted as length of tunnel and its stations are, in fact, infrastructure works, the length of bus routes is the sum of all the routes (in one only way), regardless of some routes share a common piece of their path. Moreover, the stops are the sum of all route stops.

|other city buses||129||1,240|
The demand is shown in the following table which represents the amount of tickets validated in every company. The ticket integration was implemented in 2001 so that the user must pay only once, but must validate as many times as steps are in their journey.
Since the beginning of ticket integration in 2001 until 2011 the demand of public transport increased in 180.0 millions of passengers, which means 23.8%.
In 2011, in spite of the economic crisis, the number of passengers reached the absolute maximum. The decrease of the city buses is mainly due to the extension on the metro network that captured one part of the bus demand.
