Minato, I have a question about REAL. Is it going to be just an upgrade of the TER lines around Lyon or is it going to be a proper suburban rail akin to Transilien or Spain's Cercanias networks?

Still four month to wait before the opening of Reims tram.
Reims is a city of 187,206 inhabitants proper and 294,000 inhabitants for the metro area.
The city is located on the east of Paris and it is the biggest city of the Champagne Region.

The network will be 11 km km long for 22 stations.
The estimated daily traffic is 45,000.

I wonder if Line D of the Lyon Metro will increase its capacity anytime soon. I don't get why the busiest line outside of Paris only runs two-car trains.

Not before 2018 or 19

Two cars trains seemed (and were) sufficient, when building the line(1990).
And now (2011), it would be too expansive to buy few carriages to get four cars trains.

So Lyon Transit Authority waits some years and will buy a great serie of automatic four cars trains (between 2018 and 2020)

Are there any current plans for Lille's Transpole?

Such as, tramway expansion or new rolling stock or metro expansion?

The only thing I've read about so far, is that there is going to be a new high-frequency bus system in the agglomeration.

+ 1.8 km with two stations for the line 1 toward Eurasanté.
Line 1 will be doubled in capacity.

This is la Corolle, bus rapid transit, circling Lille. It could be changed partially into a tram-train if needed.




There is also a radiant network made of "Lianes" = "L" in the map :



Not to mention a project of waterway shuttle service between la citadelle and Euratechnologies, or the bicycle rental service called Vélille for september 2011.


Two first tram-trains are planned, north-south (orange) and west-east (blue) :

Here you'll find the schedule (in French)
http://www.lilletransport.com/Planni...du-reseau.html


Beyond, a RER or tram-trains will connect Lille with the Bassin minier and two tramways for Béthune and Lens are currently under study :

Outside Paris there isn't any real suburban rail network. It is regional network that cover a whole Region (TER).
The best is the Rhones Alpes TER where is located the city of Lyon.

There are suburban networks, but they are all include in the regional networks. Some lines are only suburban lines (for example : western lyon lines), some are both regional and suburban (Lyon-Ambérieu line that is suburban but which some stations are served by IC trains to Geneva).
Minato ku is right, Lyon is certainly the best system with many lines, but Lille is not bad at all too.

Are the tram-train proposals for Lyon and Lille ways to add suburban rail to those cities on the cheap?

Tram-trains in Lyon will be an improvement of existing lines on which x73500 diesel trains run now.
