The Jundah Subway is a mass rapid transit system primarily serving the cities of Jundah and Stuart.

History

The system opened in 1968 with Line 1 from Sedgwick to Harborside and Line 2 from Museum District (then Lamott Circle) to Stuart Central. In 1974, Line 1 was extended to Scripps Beach and Line 2 to Merita Terminal. A branch for Line 3 was built to Krakouer Beach in 1977, and the rest of the line was run along the existing Line 2 tracks. In response to the construction of the Medical Center and new developments surrounding the decommissioned Mayfield Airport, Line 5 was opened to Scripps Beach in 1979.

The short Line 4 was opened in its entirety in 1994. The project had been planned two decades ago, but was delayed due to a series of budget cuts, hence the gap in numbering.

Lines 2 and 3 were extended to Arlington Arbor in 2001, and Line 3 was even further extended to Sedona in 2005. Finally, Line 5 was extended to Villa Serena in 2014.
