The Métro Lausanne is the rail-based public transport means the Swiss city of Lausanne . It consists of the lines M1 and M2.

Lausanne light rail (line m1)

The 7.8 km long line m1, opened in May 1991, connects the Flon station with the Renens train station in the western neighboring town of Renens . Since it is crossed several times by individual traffic, it corresponds technically to a light rail ; In the inner city area and in Malley , three stations are underground, the others are on the surface. Originally the m1 Tramway du sud-ouest lausannois (TSOL) was called; many users of the line still call it TSOL today.

Lausanne metro (line m2)

In contrast, the m2 line from Ouchy to Epalinges , which opened in September 2008, is a subway that runs almost entirely in tunnels and is the first of its kind in Switzerland. It was created from the renovation of the Lausanne – Ouchy cog railway and the extension to the north.
