In addition to construction works and the purchase of new trains, the tender also includes the operation and maintenance of the line for 19 years.

Half of the estimated cost will be covered by the city and half will come from private sector investment.

Line 6 will connect with Lines 7 and 8 CPTM commuter services, with future integration to metro lines 1 and 4.

Construction work is expected to begin in 2014 and completed by 2020.
