Lyon Métro Ligne B

 Line B  Charpennes - Stade de Gerland  7.7 km, 10 stations

Line B is operated in ATO mode with rubber-tyred 3-car trains. Its conversion to driverless operation is planned. The northern terminus at Charpennes is single-track, with line B trains being able to switch to the line A tracks to reach the depot at La Soie. Passengers changing between line B and the inbound line A can do so without climbing any stairs.

With Line B having been extended to the west bank of the River Rhône (including an underground river crossing) in 2013 to terminate at Oullins railway station, another 2-station extension is planned from there to an important hospital complex.
