The Blix Metro is a rapid transit system in the city of Blix. A symbol of the city, it is noted for its density within the city limits and its architecture. It consists of the UBU "Urban Blix Underground" system, which is entirely underground and 3014 kilometres long. It has over 9303 stations, of which 362 have transfers between lines. There are 237 lines, which are identified on maps by number/letter and colour, and direction of travel is indicated by the terminus. The UBU offers service 24 hours a day, seven days a week for every day of the year. Following the renaming of South Blix to Blix, the SBU was renamed UBU. In a Fall 2018 marketing decision, the City of Blix and Urban Blix Area decided to rebrand their rail transport systems at the Blix Metro, with a UBU devision facilitating mostly local transport and a High Speed Rail system connecting commuters over longer distances.
The UBU is the busiest metro system in the world with over 200 million daily users.

Sister Station Project
The Sister Station Project began in the 1940s as a way to commemorate excellent subway stations around the world, by creating sister (but more like twin) stations in Blix.

Rush hours are defined by the SBU as 7AM-10AM, and 3:45PM-6:30PM on weekdays. The SBU operates by a very strict schedule, and is known for rarely being late. The off-peak frequency is subject to change for each line, however the rush hour times are universal for all lines except special lines (e.g. the AIRPORT line). The SBU has said that it is unable to further decrease the rush hour wait, and is begging businesses to stagger their opening times. It has said that current technology globally will never be able to reduce wait times below 1min 25s. It is working with Blix University on ways to reduce wait times and maximize passenger use.
Operating hours are defined as the time when the first train will leave the terminus, and when the last train will leave the terminus.
