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

History

The system opened in 1968 with the Red Line from Sedgwick to Harborside and the Green Line from Lamott to Stuart Central. In 1974, the Red and Green Lines were extended west to Prospect Beach and Merita Terminal, respectively.

In response to the construction of the Medical Center and new developments surrounding the decommissioned Mayfield Airport in East Jundah, the Blue Line was opened to Medical Center in 1979 and extended to Del Mar Station in Scripps Beach in 1981. In 1992, the Red Line was extended from Harborside to Scripps Beach, providing a quicker service to East Jundah than the existing Blue Line, which had many stops and fewer downtown connections. The extension was built alongside existing commuter rail lines.

In Stuart, the Green Line was extended east to Arlington Center in 2001 and Airport Village in 2005, providing subway access to Jundah-Stuart Intercontinental Airport.
