The following is a list of Lyon Metro stations. As of September 2018, there are 40 stations (44 stations, counting interchange stations twice) in the Lyon Metro system proper.[1][2] This list includes the metro stations, as well as the stations of the two funiculars of Lyon.

Metro[edit]

All metro stations are wheelchair accessible, and are equipped with turnstiles or automated gates.

Line A[edit]

Line A of the Lyon Metro currently serves 14 stations, and has a route length of 9.2 kilometres (5.7 mi).[1] It, together with Line B, were the inaugural lines of the Lyon Metro, opening in 1978.[2] An extension of Line A from Laurent Bonnevay, Astroballe to Vaul-en-Velin, La Soie opened in 2007.[2]

Line B[edit]

Place Guichard

Line B of the Lyon Metro currently serves 10 stations, and has a route length of 7.7 kilometres (4.8 mi).[1] It, together with Line A, were the inaugural lines of the Lyon Metro, opening in 1978.[2] It has since been extended southwards twice: from Part-Dieu to Jean Macé in 1981, and again from Jean Macé to Stade de Gerland in 2000; a further extension to the train station at Oullins Gare opened in December 2013.[3]

Line C[edit]

Croix-Paquet

Line C of the Lyon Metro serves 5 stations, and has a route length of 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi).[1] It began to operate in 1974,[2], independently of the Lyon Metro, as a rack railway, after the conversion from a former funicular. When it was integrated into the Lyon Metro with the latter's inauguration in 1978, Line C was extended from Croix-Paquet to Hôtel de Ville; in 1984 the line reached its current northern terminus at Cuire.[2]

Line D[edit]

Gorge de Loup

Line D of the Lyon Metro is the longest line, serving 15 stations, and having a route length of 12.6 kilometres (7.8 mi).[2] It is the newest line of the Lyon Metro, first opening in 1991.[2] Line D has been extended twice since its opening: in 1992 from Grange Blanche to Gare de Vénissieux, and in 1997 from Gorge de Loup to Gare de Vaise.[2]
