Grenoble
Grenoble built in the years '80s a modern tramway system, after a popular referendum among the inhabitants (with close success for who was in favour). The first line (Line A) opened in 1987, followed by Line B in 1990. The two lines share a section from the railway station to the city center; in this point Line B leaves Line A and turns east towards the city hospital and the university campus. In 1996 Line A was extended in southern direction towards Echirolles; two years later (1998) another section was added with the new terminal of Denis Papin. All these extensions were completed by another branch in western direction connecting the railway station to Europoles business district; other addictions are expected in short-middle term plans: Citè Internationale al Polygone Scientifique (Line B), La Poya-Sassenage and Denis Papin-Pont de Claix (Line A).
The third line (Line C) opened in 2006; it runs from Seyssins Le Prisme to Saint-Martin d'Heres Condillac Universites connecting Grenoble to the suburban areas of Seyssins, Seysinnet, St Martin d'Heres and Gieres (which will assume a strategic role thanks to the high speed railways Turin-Lyon). Line D followed in 2007, with a short noth-south track from Saint Martin d'Heres to the University District, passing through Gabriel Peri and Renaudie quartiers.
A fifth line (Line E) should complete the network, replacing an existing trolley-bus line from Fontanil to Cornillon.
