Hints & Tips

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Mini Metro
Last Updated:

Circle Lines

Build circle lines whenever you can.

Redo Lines

Pause the game and redo lines into smaller units when a line gets too long.


Keep the lines in order and take advantage of the upgrades which come in the form of budget increases which will feature new lines, platforms, capacity, and much more.

Get tunnels whenever possible, otherwise go for carriages.

Collapsing Station

If things get tight, you can always move one train to the collapsing station (it finishes the stop at the next station and then respawns where you placed it).

Rare Symbols

Connect rare symbols to at least 2 lines.

Variety of Shapes

Have a variety of shapes on each main line (with at least one square, triangle and circle) but also minimise distance travelled.


Make rarer shapes (squares, pluses etc.) interchanges or have them close to interchanges.

Early Rails

Think about how you place your early rails thoroughly. They can have a significant impact as more stations appear.

Extra Trains

You can drag your extra trains between rails, so watch for crowded stations and adjust accordingly.


Passengers can be unloaded at any same-shaped station, keep that in mind when creating your railways.


Try to avoid having two or more stations in a row because when a train is full when emptying the first station, it will go past the second one as it has no place to drop its passengers. The best way to deal with this is to break the cycle by adding a station from a different type inbetween, for example a triangle.

Moving Carriages

You will know when you are moving a carriage when the object you are dragging is a perfect rectangle.
