Lille Metro
The Lille metro (French: Métro de Lille) is a driverless metro located in Lille, France. It was opened on 25 April 1983 and was the first to use the VAL (French: véhicule automatique léger, English: light automated vehicle) system. The metro is made up of 2 lines that serve 60 stations, and runs over 45 kilometres (28 mi) of route.
The metro forms part of a multi-modal public transport system covering the Lille metropolitan area, along with buses and trams, operated under the Transpole brand.
