Nagoya City Subway

I regularly use the subway to travel round Nagoya and its nether regions.Its quick and convenient.Here are some facts I read recently in the Nagoya Calendar.
The subway first opened in 1957.It now operates an 89km system with 93 stations.It has 131 trains and 762 carriages in operation every day.There are on average 1.1million commuters daily.Not bad when you consider that Nagoya's population is about 2.4 million.
The last train runs at 00:30 each night and the first run begins at 5:30am on the busiest line.
