The extension serves new stations at Correo Central (Line E’s first interchange with Line B), Catalinas and Retiro and is forecast to increase ridership on the Buenos Aires metro network by around 63,000 passengers per day. It will also relieve the parallel Line C, previously the only metro line to serve Retiro.

The new section is the first extension of Line E to open since 1986 and has taken almost 20 years to complete.
