It currently has 3 lines in construction which together are approximatley 46km long:

- The first line routes from south east (Gole Sorkh) to north east (Ehsan Sq. & Mirza Koochak Khan).

- Second line route from Imam Hossein Sq. to Adel Abad & Mian Rood.

As a result of construction of train railway of (Shiraz – Esfahan), the plan for the construction of third line in order to connect with train rail way has begun.

- Third line route. From Mirza Koochak Khan Sq. to Sadra new town.

**Line one:**The length of the Line No. One in Shiraz metro network will be 22.4 Km which will connect Gole Sorkh Sq. to Ehsan Sq. through Vali Asr Sq., Namazi Sq. Ghasr Dasht Sq., Golkhoon St. and Mirza Koochak Khan Sq.

The main depot (Rerpair and Parking) is located about 1,300 meter south east of Gol e Sorkh Sq. and depot no.2 will be near Ehsan Sq.

First line has 20 underground stations and 1 station above the ground. This line passes through municipality territories and real estates (streets, side walks and…)

In the first 15 Km from the beginning of this line, two separate tunnels with the diameter of 7m will be constructed and from Zargari subway, Ghasr Dasht St., Ghasr Dasht Sq., Golkhoon St. to Chamran bridge just 1 tunnel with low depth will be constructed. From Chamran Bridge to Mirza Koochak Khan Sq., the line is on the ground. Beside Dry River and from Mirza Koochak khan Sq. up to Ehsan Sq. the line again will be constructed on the ground with the width of 10m. Original depot and repair shop is about 27 hectares which is designed and specified for parking, dispatching, washing, cleaning and repairing about 120 wagons. Depot No.2 will be about 15 km underground and will be designed and constructed for the stop station of about 18 wagons. The area of this depot is 20000 m2.

__Line Two:__The length of this line will be 8.5 K.M. which will connect Imam Hossein Sq. to Mian Rood & Aadel Abad through Enghelab Street and Basij Sq.

Structural specifications of this line will be 15m in depth with 2 separate tunnels with about 7 meters diameter each.

Coordination & conformity of technical specifications of this line with the first line, construction of 1 station (Depot No. 3) at the end of this line (in Mian Rood) and all activities such as washing, cleaning, light & heavy repairing which are done at original Depot is another specification of this line.

This line and its transportation are completely independent from the first line.

There will be 8 underground stations and 2 stations above ground in this line.

**Line Three:**The length of the third line is 16 km which will connect Mirza Koochak Khan Sq. to the Center of Sadra New Town through Electronic Industry Sq., Martyr Beheshty, Hafez, Bezin and Esteghlal Towns, Golestan town crossroad, Tange Jallab Blvd.

About 4 km of the beginning of this line will be built in a form of a low depth tunnel and the rest of the route will go above the ground. In this line there will be 6 of the both, underground and aboveground, stations up to Golestan Town crossroad . In view of the fact that The State Railroad Company (Esfahan – Shiraz) is now constructing a railroad terminal close to Golestan Town and about one km from the Golestan Town crossroad, therefore for transportation of the passengers who will arrive in or depart from this railroad terminal, a special metro station is foreseen in the third metro line which will be built around this railroad terminal.

Research and study about the construction of the third line has begun from the second half of Iranian year 1382 , and provided the necessary funds are received on time, hopefully the third line will be operational too, at the same time the first line is going to be operational.
