Touring the Colegio de Ingenieros station of the Caracas subway [Eng-Esp]

Greetings fellow architecture lovers of the world! Today I would like to invite you to tour one of the Caracas Metro stations, the Colegio de Ingenieros station. Come with me to pick up the facilities.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit the capital city of Venezuela with my family to do some paperwork. The visit was lightning but I was able to take advantage of every second to enjoy things that we do not have in the state of Tachira, such as traveling by subway.

I had the doubt if I could make the tour of at least one station because the number of people who move in this means of transport is impressive and because of my health condition I was afraid that the crowd of people would not let me get on.

Fortunately we went at a not very busy time. We entered the subway at the Colegio de Ingenieros station and moved to the next station Plaza Venezuela. A short ride but we were satisfied since it was the first time that my husband and daughter were traveling on this transport.

On our tour of the station, I could see that tickets are purchased from vending machines that work similar to ATM machines. Regular passengers have special cards that when recharged give them access to the trains.

Everything is very well signposted. The routes, the spaces, the places to wait, the warnings not to pass. I found the lighting in the subway to be adequate and whenever I needed information some employee told me what I needed.

I really liked the concrete walkways that connect one side of the tracks with the other going in the opposite direction. It is a comfortable and safe way to pass over the train tracks.

Escalators, location maps and a lot of trains running was what we could see at the station. The platform is spacious for a large number of passengers. Everything looked very clean and organized.

The walls are in a rustic finish, I like this and I think it is the best way to preserve a structure of this dimension over time, as it does not require touch up painting. While in some sections we see that it is covered with ceramic tiles that are very easy to wash and keep clean.

The trains have cars that are joined together with joints. They have enough seats and standing room. Some seats are marked with special seating for people with disabilities or special needs. The tracks, which are 2, in 2 directions, look clean and are functional.

We arrived at our destination, Plaza Venezuela station, which has always been my favorite station. Very similar to the previous station, but it looks more modern to me.

My family unlocked one more place we had yet to visit. I was very happy to share this tour with you. See you next time, Bye!

Recorriendo la estación Colegio de Ingenieros del Metro de Caracas

¡Saludos amigos amantes de la arquitectura del mundo! Hoy me gustaría invitarlos a recorrer una de las estaciones del Metro de Caracas, la estación Colegio de Ingenieros. Acompáñame a recoger las instalaciones.

IMG_20240404_152226~2.jpg

Hace unas semanas tuve la oportunidad de visitar la ciudad Capital de Venezuela con mi familia para hacer unos trámites. La visita fue relámpago pero pude aprovechar cada segundo para disfrutar de cosas que en el estado Táchira no tenemos, como por ejemplo en viajar en metro.

IMG_20240404_152306~2.jpg

Tenía la duda si podría hacer el recorrido de por lo menos una estación ya que la cantidad de personas que se trasladan en este medio de transporte es impresionante y por mi condición de salud tenía miedo que la multitud de gente no me dejaran subir.

Afortunadamente fuimos en una hora no muy transitada. Entramos al metro por la estación Colegio de Ingenieros y nos trasladamos a la siguiente estacion Plaza Venezuela. Un corto trayecto pero estabamos satisfechos ya que era la primera vez que mi esposo y mi hija viajaban en este transporte.


IMG_20240404_152555~2.jpg

En nuestro recorrido por la estación, pude ver que los boletos se compran en unas máquinas expendedoras que funcionan parecido a los cajeros automáticos. Los pasajeros habituales tienen tarjetas especiales que al recargarlas les da acceso a los trenes.

IMG_20240404_145829~2.jpg

Todo está muy bien señalizado. Las rutas, los espacios, los lugares para esperar, las advertencias para no pasar. Me parece que la iluminación del subterráneo era adecuada y siempre que necesité información algún empleado me indicó lo que requería.

Me gustaron mucho las pasarelas de concreto que conectan un lado de las vías con el otro que va en sentido contrario. Es una forma cómoda y segura de pasar sobre las vías de los trenes.

IMG_20240404_152907~2.jpg

Escaleras eléctricas, mapas de ubicación y una gran cantidad de trenes circulando fue lo que pudimos ver en la estación. El andén es espacioso para una gran cantidad de pasajeros. Todo se veía muy limpio y organizado.

IMG_20240404_151939~2.jpg

Los muros están en un acabado rústico, esto me gusta y pienso que es la mejor forma de conservar una estructura de esta dimensión a lo largo del tiempo, ya que no requiere de retoques de pintura. Mientras que en algunos tramos vemos que está recubierto con lozas de cerámica que son muy fáciles de Lavar y mantener limpias.

IMG_20240404_151957~2.jpg

Los trenes tienen vagones que se unen con unas articulaciones. Tienen suficientes asientos y espacio para ir de pie. Algunos asientos están marcados con la señal de asientos especiales para personas con discapacidad o necesidades especiales. Las vías, que son 2, en 2 direcciones, se ven limpias y están funcionales.

Llegamos a nuestro destino, la estación de plaza Venezuela, siempre ha sido mi estación favorita. Muy parecida a la estación anterior, pero me parece que es más moderna.

IMG_20240404_150530~2.jpg

Mi familia desbloqueó un lugar más que teníamos pendientes por visitar. Me dio mucho gusto compartir con ustedes este recorrido. Nos vemos en una próxima oportunidad. Chao!

Que bueno que tu familia conociera el metro de Caracas. Estación siempre se mantiene limpia y no es muy transcurrida. el la noche dicen que suele aparecer el espectro de una mujer con vestido de novia.

Ohhh that would be very scary but interesting? I didn't know that. Now I'll have to wait for my next visit to wait for the specter. 🤭.

Ohhh eso sería muy aterrador pero interesante... No lo sabía. Ahora tendré que esperar mi próxima visita para esperar al espectro. 🤭.

Amiga, I had the pleasure of visiting that subway station, I'm glad you capture with your photographs that great architecture.
Glad to know that your family was able to visit and take the subway with peace of mind. Happy afternoon 🌹🌷🪷🪻🌼🌸🥀💮💐🌺🌻☘️

A great tour friend, it looks all very clean and well signposted, it looks to me like you had a great ride.

I always find it great to travel on this transport, as if it was the first time.

Hello my dear friend, what a great ride on the subway, it is immense! it is a joy to have this transport🤩🤗

Hola mi querida amiga, qué buen paseo por el metro,es inmenso! es una dicha contar con este medio de transporte🤩🤗

That's why every time I go to the capital city I really like to ride the subway.. thanks for stopping by. A hug 😘

Por eso cada vez que voy a la ciudad capital me gusta mucho viajar en el metro.. gracias por pasarte. Un abrazo 😘

Very nice trip on subway

It is great. I am very pleased to be able to travel in this transport when I visit the capital city.

Es genial. Me da mucho gusto poder viajar en este transporte cuando visito la capital

Que tal amiga, me hicistes recordar gratos momentos, la ultima vez que visite Caracas hace como 7 años el metro era el transporte ideal para trasladarnos ya que mi esposo no conocia las calles y le fue dificil manejar por lo que preferimos andar en metro, extraordinaria experiencia, te ahorras mucho tiempo y viajas muy cómodo. Coincido contigo en que a veces la cantidad de personas que utilizan el metro aturde, ademas hay que estar alerta ya que suceden robos frecuentes en esos tumultos, y más aún cuando estamos de turistas, saludos y te deseo que tengas una pronta recuperación.

I always find it great to travel on this transport, as if it was the first time 🤭. I love it.

Thank you very much for your good wishes. Best regard

!Siempre viajar en este transporte me resulta genial, como si fuera la primera vez 🤭. Me encanta.

Muchas gracias por tus Buenos deseos. Un abrazo

What a nice ride my friend, well I tell you that my first and only time I have ridden a subway was right there, in Caracas, Venezuela. It was a nice and unique experience although I rode it several times in the two weeks I was in the Capital, I loved that adventure, I went everywhere hahaha, greetings friend 👋🏽

That's the great thing about the Metro that it takes you everywhere. I think it's fast and safe. I'm glad you could get to know this means of transportation in my country ☺️. Thanks for supporting my publication

!LOL

Thanks for the support 😊

Hello friend, the trips in the subway are an event, it saves time and you must move fast because the doors close at the speed of light heh, heh; sometimes the number of people stun, but for errands in the dynamic capital is the best means of transportation.

Greetings!

Public transportation is quite good, can connect various places with one train. Hopefully one day where I live there will be good transportation.

What a nice tour of the subway. It's great that you managed to get these photos, I understand the atmosphere is very hectic.
