Copenhagen Metro (Danish: Københavns metro) is a rapid transit system serving Copenhagen, Frederiksberg and Tårnby in Denmark. The 20.5 km (12.7-mile) system opened between 2002 and 2007, and has two lines, M1 and M2 as you can see in Metro map Copenhagen. The driverless light metro supplements the larger S-train rapid transit system, and is integrated with DSB local trains and Movia buses. Through the city center and west to Frederiksberg, M1 and M2 share a common line. To the south-east, the system serves Amager, with the 13.7 km (8.5-mile) M1 running though the new neighborhood of Ørestad, and the 14.2 km (8.8-mile) M2 serving the eastern neighborhoods and Copenhagen Airport.
Copenhagen metro has 22 stations, of which 9 are underground as its shown in Metro map Copenhagen. In 2011, the metro carried 54.3 million passengers. The system is owned by Metroselskabet, which is again owned by the municipalities of Copenhagen and Frederiksberg, and the Ministry of Transport. Planning of the metro started in 1992 as part of the redevelopment plans for Ørestad. A tramway and light rail were considered, but discarded in the process. Construction started in 1996, and stage 1, from Nørreport to Vestamager and Lergravsparken, opened in 2002. Stage 2, from Nørreport to Vanløse, opened in 2003, followed by stage 3, from Lergravsparken to Lufthavnen, in 2007. Construction of the City Circle Line is underway, and is scheduled to open in 2018. It will form a circle around the city center, be entirely underground and not share any track with M1 and M2. A further expansion towards Brønshøj is being considered.
There are twenty-two stations on Copenhagen metro network, of which nine are underground and six are deep-level. They were all designed by KHR Arkitekter, who created open stations with daylight. Stations have an information column in front, marked with a large 'M' and featuring information screens. All stations have a vestibule at ground level, which has ticket and local information, ticket machines and validators. The stations are built with island platforms and are fully accessible for people with disabilities. The six deep-level stations are built as square, open boxes 60 m (200 ft) long, 20 m (66 ft) wide and 20 m (66 ft) deep as its mentioned in Metro map Copenhagen. The platforms are located 18 m (59 ft) below the surface. Access to the surface is reached via escalators and elevators. The design allows the stations to be located below streets and squares, allowing the stations to be built without expropriation.

Copenhagen subway consists of two lines, M1 and M2. They share a common section from Vanløse to Christianshavn, where they split along two subway lines: M1 follows the Ørestad Line to Vestamager, while M2 follows the Østamager Line to the airport. The lines have 22 stations and are 20.5 km (12.7 miles) long, of which 9 stations and 7.4 km (4.6 miles) km are on the common section. M1 is 13.7 km (8.5 miles) long and has 15 stations, while M2 is 14.2 km (8.8 miles) long and has 16 stations as you can see in Copenhagen subway map. About 10 km (6 miles) of the lines and 9 stations are in tunnel, located at 20 to 30 m (70 to 100 ft) below ground level. The remaining sections are on embankments, viaducts or at ground level. The section from Vanløse to Frederiksberg follows the Frederiksberg Line, a former S-train line which runs on an embankment. Between Solbjerg and Frederiksberg, the line runs underground, and continues through the city center. After Christianshavn, the line splits in two. M1 reaches ground level at Islands Brygge, and continues on a viaduct through the Vestamager area. M2 continues in tunnel until after Lergravsparken, where it starts to follow the former Amager Line.
Copenhagen subway system operates continually with a varying headway throughout the day. During rush hour (07:00–10:00 and 15:00–18:00), there is a two-minute headway on the common section and a four-minute headway on the single-service sections. During Thursday through Saturday night (0:00–05:00), the headway is fifteen minutes, and other nights it is twenty minutes on all sections of Copenhagen subway. At all other times, there is a three-minute headway on the common section and a six-minute on the split sections. Travel time from Nørreport to Vestamager on M1 is 14 minutes, to the airport on M2 is 15 minutes, and to Vanløse on M1 and M2 is 9 minutes as its shown in Copenhagen subway map. In 2009, the metro transported 50 million passengers, or 137,000 per day.
Copenhagen subway system is owned by Metroselskabet, who is also responsible for building the City Circle Line. The company is owned by Copenhagen Municipality (50.0%), the Ministry of Transport (41.7%) and Frederiksberg Municipality (8.3%) as its mentioned in Copenhagen subway map. The company is organized with as few employees as possible. Construction and operation is subcontracted through public tenders, while consultants are used for planning. The contract to operate Copenhagen subway system was made with Ansaldo STS, who has subcontracted it to Metro Service, a joint venture between them and Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM), the public transport company of the city of Milan, Italy. The company has about 200 employees, the majority of whom work as stewards.
