Rennes, France

From nycsubway.org


The city of Rennes, France has a 9.4km metro line operated using the French "VAL" (véhicule automatique léger or light automatic vehicle) system. It opened March 15, 2002. The single line has 15 stations, 13 underground and 2 elevated. The elevated station and the elevated viaducts were designed by architect Norman Foster, well known for his "Gherkin" building in London. All stations are equipped with platform edge doors and are fully accessible. Trains run from approximately 5:00 am to 12:30 am, at approximately 90 second intervals. The 9.4km line takes about 16 minutes to ride end to end. There are 24 VAL trains in the fleet. A second line is proposed to open by 2018, also operated with the VAL technology. The Rennes metro is operated by Service des Transports en Commun de l'Agglomération Rennaise (STAR).
