Lyon funiculars

The west side of Lyon is hilly, so the city has two funicular lines, it used to have more lines in the past.



Vieux Lyon Cathédrale Saint-Jean - Saint-Just
Saint-Just funicular opened in 1878, the line is 0.8 km long and has three stations.
In 1901 the line was converted in rack railway but in 1958 it was reverted in a funicular.
The line was modernised in the 1980's.
This line is used as a real mass transit line, linking the district of Saint Just to Vieux Lyon (old Lyon) district and the metro line D.

Vieux Lyon Cathédrale Saint-Jean - Fourvière
Fourvière funicular opened in 1900, the line is 0.4 km long and has two stations.
Unlike the other Saint Just line, this line is mostly used for tourist purpose.
It serves the famous Fourvière Basilica.

They mostly serve the eastern side of the Rhône River.
The main hubs for the trolleybus are Hotel de Ville (C3, C14, C18, S6) Part Dieu (C1, C2, C3), Saxe Lafayette (C3, C4, C14), Saxe Gambetta (C4, C11, C14).

Rue de la Republique, Cours Lafayette and Avenue du Marechal de Saxe are the main streets with most trolleybuses.

While the transit network of Lyon is diverse, the bus rolling stock is not.
If we exclude the small buses and trolleybus, it is almost only Agora and Citelis.

I don't know, in august 2010, they modified the whole network of bus and the C13 (formerly line 13) was extented from Part Dieu to Grange Blanche.
This extension don't have overhead wires for trolleybus.
EDIT : This will occur in one year, according a forumer from Lyon.

The line 13 in October 2010 in Cuire.


Trolleybus are a rare thing in France, we only have three cities with trolleybus.
Lyon (8 lines), Limoges (5 lines) and Saint Etienne (2 lines).
We can add Nancy with the TVR, a mix between a tramway and a trolleybus.

Rue de la Republique between Cordelier and Hotel de Ville (the rest of the street is predestrian only) is one of best place to spot buses in Lyon.
The street is reserved to bus.



C3 during rush hours.

Inside a Irisbus Cristalis ETB18 of the line C3.


Overhead wires in Part-Dieu.
In this picture, we see the wires of the C1, C2, C3 and T1.
