Wow, Lausanne is going to get a subway? My city has 300.000 within the city limits, 600.000 within the close metro and 3,6 million in the metro region - and we barely have commuter trains!

Our bus system is pretty good though.

The trains look like a moderate-capacity system. Looks very nice, a useful addition to public transport.

The demolition of the old line:



Before Friday all vehicles will have leaved the line, except two or three engines wich will be used to reove the rails.

All photos taken yesterday.

Great news! It looks like it'll be quite nice. Which other cities have subway in Switzerland? Just Zürich?

None.

Zürich (and Berne I think) have suburban rails called S-Bahn.

^ Zürich has a tram tunnel eith three stops built for the projected metro. When a referendum choose the development of the tram network instead of the metro, the tunnel was used for trams.

Oh well...

I really like Lausanne's project. It shows that cities below 500.000 inhabitants (usually the minimum number of inhabitants transport planners and politicians would think of to consider the construction of a full metro line) can sustain a metro line as well. Rennes is another example: the city itself has only 215.000 inh., but has a full, underground metro line. They're even planning a second line...

True, but I think density also comes into play here. A city of 500,000 and dense has more chance of a successful metro system than a city of 1million and spread out low density sprawl.

You're right. Low density cities simply couldn't sustain a heavy rail line, simply because most people (and potential riders) would be living too far from a station. The length of the feeder lines would probably be just as great as a 'normal' network of bus- or tram lines going directly into the center.
