The concessionaire Tren Urbano de Lima, in charge of Lima Metro Line 1 has indicated its plans to present a transport capacity expansion project in Peru.

With the increasing passenger flow on Lima Metro Line 1 and the future integration with Line 2, as well as the upcoming Lines 3 and 4, there are plans to expand the transport capacity. Line 2 of Lima Metro comprises the 28 de Julio and Plaza Manco Cápac stations, with the former having achieved 50% physical progress. Covering 13 districts of Lima and Callao, including Ate Vitarte, Santa Anita, San Luis, El Agustino, La Victoria, Breña, Jesús María, Cercado de Lima, Carmen de la Legua, and Callao, Line 2 will operate with 42 trains. 

Line 2 of the Lima Metro is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project that aims to provide a faster and more efficient transportation option from the port of Callao to the Municipality of Ate. With a travel time of just 45 minutes, it offers a significant improvement over the congested 45-minute journey by road-based public transport. The line encompasses a branch of Line 4, spanning 8 km and serving 8 stations, including Av. Elmer Faucett and Av. Néstor Gambetta, which conveniently passes through the airport area.
