France can now boast about a quarter of all world-wide tramway systems launched since This raises many questions.
Why this sudden revival. The Greek capital city Athens is served by two rapid transit systems, the kilometer Athens to the Port of Piraeus line, which consists of one line which is served by twenty four stations and became operational in and the 35 kilometer city metro, an underground commuter network which consists of two lines which are served by thirty three stations which became operational in Paris Metro), advanced light rail systems (e.g., Docklands Light Rail, Lille VAL), and modernised old- style trams (e.g., Blackpool, St Etienne, Marseille) have not been included in the study.
Contrary to this approach, two systems have been included that do not fit this outline.DID YOU KNOW THAT IN EUROPE There are 41 metro networks, totaling lines, stops and km of tracks.
