It has a daily ridership of over one million. The first line, the red one, opened in 1964, making Milan the second city in Italy after Rome to have a metro system. The green line opened 5 years later and the yellow line in 1990. Two new lines are under construction and are planned to open before the 2015 Expo. All the lines run underground except for the northern part of Line 2, which is mostly on viaducts, and the Line 2 Assago branch.
There are 4 interchange stations of Milan metro, each with 2 lines: Centrale (Line 2 and 3), also Milan main train station; Duomo (Line 1 and 3), considered the center of the city; Loreto (Line 1 and 2); Cadorna (Line 1 and 2), city terminus for northbound suburban and regional railways.

However, other 11 municipalities are served: Assago, Bussero, Cassina de' Pecchi, Cernusco sul Naviglio, Cologno Monzese, Gessate, Gorgonzola, Pero, Rho, Sesto San Giovanni, Vimodrone.

The first projects for a subway line in Milan were drawn up in 1914 and 1925 as you can see in Milan subway map, following the examples of underground transport networks in other European countries like London and Paris. Planning proceeded in 1938 for the construction of a system of 7 lines, but this too halted after the start of World War II and due to lack of funds. On 3 July 1952 the city administration voted for a project of a subway system and on 6 October 1955 a new company, Metropolitana Milanese, was created to manage the construction of the new infrastructure.
Milan subway project was funded with ₤ 500 million from the municipality and the rest from a loan. The construction site of the first line was opened in viale Monte Rosa on 4 May 1957. Stations on the new line were designed by Franco Albini and Franca Helg architecture studio, while Bob Noorda designed the famous signaling. For this project both Albini-Helg and Noorda won the Compasso D'Oro prize. Milan first subway section from Lotto to Sesto Marelli (21 stations) was opened on 1 November 1964, after 7 years of construction works as its shown in Milan subway map. The track was 12.5 km (7.8 mi) long, and the mean distance between the stations was 590 m (1,940 ft). In the same year, in April, works on the second line started. Passengers on the network grew constantly through the first years of service, passing from 37,092,315 in 1965 to 61,937,192 in 1969.
The green line from Caiazzo to Cascina Gobba (7 stations) opened five years later. During the 1960s and 1970s the network of 2 subway lines was completed, and both lines had 2 different spurs as its mentioned in Milan subway map. In 1978, the lines were already 17.6 km (10.9 mi) and 23 km (14 mi) long respectively, with 28 and 22 stations. Milan subway first section of the third line (yellow), with 5 stations, was opened on 3 May 1990 after almost 9 years of construction works. The line opened just before the World Cup. The other 9 stations on Line 3 opened to the southeast in 1991, and northwest to Maciachini Station in 2004. In March 2005 the Line 2 Abbiategrasso station (south branch from Famagosta) and the Line 1 Rho Fiera station opened. The intermediate station of Pero opened on December 2005. A north extension of Line 3 to Comasina (4 stations) and a new south branch on the Line 2 to Assago (2 stations) opened in early 2011.
