Lyon Métro Ligne A

 Line A  Perrache - Vaulx-en-Velin La Soie  9.2 km, 14 stations

Line A is operated in ATO mode with rubber-tyred 3-car trains. Most of the line was opened in 1978 and only extended by one station in 2007, mostly by taking advantage of the depot access tracks, to create an interchange with tram line T3 and the Rhônexpress to the airport. Line A links Lyon's second major railway station Perrache to the neighbouring municipality of Villeurbanne by passing through the city centre proper known as Presqu'Île (peninsula between the two rivers). The line crosses the river Rhône inside the Morand-Bridge.
