Lausanne - Smallest city in the world with metro

Lausanne is a little city in Switzerland. It's a wonderful place with many urban transports. pop 120'000. I hope you'll enjoy...Moreover the declivity is the highest in the world...the first station is near the lake (370m) and the last station in the "top" of the city (700m). 6km long

I really like the way they integrated the new metro bridge into an existing road bridge structure: innovative engineering!
I'd like to visit Lausanne one day too, just to take a ride with the VAL

The only thing I don't like about it, is that Line 2 is a VAL. Besides that: great!

It's quite new. It has enterred in service this year. But we had a shorter line since the begining of the 20th century...from downtown to the lake, with 4 stations. they had to buy news cares etc so the population agree to pay for this new line. They had to pay for this about 650 millions dollars. I'll post some new pics...

Lausanne metro tunnel collapse
13 April, 2005

On 22 February a tunnel collapse on Lot 1200 of Switzerland's M2 Project in Lausanne displaced 50m3 of material into the tunnel and caused extensive damage as it cratered towards the surface in the busy St. Laurent's commercial district.
The incident took place at around 6pm, at a depth of approximately 12m below the surface. Thankfully no-one was injured, although two buildings, a supermarket and a takeaway food outlet, were evacuated when their cellars full of wine collapsed. Reports said that no work was being carried out in the tunnel at the time of the incident, which is believed to be due to the sudden inrush of groundwater from a pocket in the glacial moraine the tunnel was being driven through.

I like how does it looks the MP-89 with that colours!

Laussane , one more metro to the Alstom- Rubber Tyred List!

santiago's NS-93 looks like Lausanne's MP-89 with ADS! XD

This is an awesome sight; I'm guessing that a metro in someplace that small works because the town itself seems pretty dense, but it's a great attitude to public transport.

In the UK, I can imagine that if a metro was proposed for a city of 120,000, the local authority would likley just laugh it out the door. But, go Lausanne!

Seems like Lausanne has a great public transport system. I love those metro trains, they remind me of the MP-89s of the Paris Metro.

If there hadn't been a railway in place before, I doubt a Metro would have even been discussed.

I think Laussane's Trains are MP-89 cause Paris Metro has donated to it.

They are new and only for Lausanne, due to the topography. In Paris or Chile, they are longer, in Lausanne: just 2 cars, and they haven't to climb any hill. Don't tell that France has donated a metro to Switzerland, it sounds strange :-)! We don't have a second-hand infrastracture.
