Switzerland is rich, they don't need any donations However I'm not astonished that Lausanne uses french technology. The Romandie has always been very oriented towards France imho.

I think that the only example of a Paris métro carriage been used in an other city is the Istanbul's Tünel cable car which use a single MP55. It has been upgraded recently though, so I don't know if it is still the original carriage.

World's smallest city with a metro

Great pictures, looks like a confusing streetscape!! As a matter of fact, Laon in France has a "Mini-metro" for only one mile (3 stops), but technically still a metro... The town has only 26,000 people!!

Laon has only fully automated municipal cable car system, called the Poma 2000. It links the upper town (the historical center, located on a plateau) with the lower town, has three stations and runs on rubber tyres.


(from wikipedia.fr)

but I don't think this transport system could be called a metro

I'd like to visit Lausanne one day too, just to take a ride with the VAL
There is something similar in Săo Paulo, but not as beautiful as in Lausanne. In fact it's quite ugly

Does the tunnel in the photo of hte bridge go into a hill? Because it appears to be several stories high.

Wow. That is stunning that the city with population c. 120000 has a metro! We have a discussion on our Polish subforum about the trams in Lublin (the city with almost 360,000 inhabitants + 100,000 college students) and people say our city is too small for that and I came here... and saw this :O I see you also have trolleys there (like we have in Lublin) and 40 bus lines. Very nice. How many people uses metro every day?

Not much for a metro, a lot compared to the size of the city: 60.000.

LAUSANNE | Public Transport

This summer I've been to Lausanne, for 1 day only as I worked in Geneva and has some time only during weekends. So, on the 16th of July I decided to visit this city I hadn't known much about. I just wanted to explore "one more" city and add it on the list of my visits. I was surprised a lot by discovering a very beautiful city with so various architecture.

One of the points of interest was, of course, metro. The point is that the Lausanne metro is the only one in Switzerland and it's completely automatic.

There're no any staff (at least noticed) in metro. Tickets are distributed aotomatically so are driven the trains.

The rolling stock is, if I'm correct, the MP89 typical of Paris, but trains here consist of 2 cars only.

I had the opportunity to explore only 1 line out of 2.

Some pictures of Lausanne-Gare station.

And one interesting thing. Prior to announcing the next stop, they play a sound that is thematically connected to the corresponding area (e.g. sound of coins, or clatter of hooves or whatever).






































To be continued.

No, unfortunately not. I wanted to but I completely forgot when admiring this city. Moreover, there was gymnastriade (didn't remember well the name) and a man I met there wanted to show me the finals.

I promise to keep this thread updating.
