Departure Procedure and Sounds

A buzz indicates the closing doors, around two seconds long and similar to the one in Paris. Next-station announcements are spoken live by the operators: "Estación [station name] – Transferencia Linea dos y Linea tres" ([Station name] station – correspondence with lines 2 and 3). A very (in)famous delay announcement is: "Debido a un arrollamiento en la estación Colegio de Ingenieros, el servicio de trenes presenta un fuerte retraso en estos momentos" (Due to a holdup in Colegio de Ingenieros station, train service is suffering from a heavy delay).
