The Marseilles Metro serves the City of Marseilles. It is a rubber-tyred metro derived from the technology developed by the RATP for Paris Metro and opened at the end of 1977. It comprises two lines, partly underground, with an overall length of 11.8 miles (19km).
Two extensions are proposed: the first, located on Line 1, is under construction; the second, on Line 2, has reached the stage of preliminary studies.
The Metro is a municipal public utility under the control of the Régie des transports de Marseille (RTM).
