DESCRIPTION(last modified February 19, 2017 )
Seville transit network combines a light metro system and LRT/tram lines.
The first section of Seville light metro opened on 02 April 2009 (Ciudad Expo-Condequinto) and it was extended on November 2009 (Condequinto-Olivar de Quinto). This project only partially recovers an original full metro plan (years '70s: 3 lines full metro network), whose construction was suspended at the beginning of years '80s due to the risk of damaging some historical buildings which would be underpassed. As said before, the current transit network is based on a light metro system (Line 1 had to be the first of other 3 metro lines to be realized; it reuses Nervion-La Plata tunnel section, that was initially constructed in years '80s for the planned full metro) and some complementary modern LRT/tram lines. Line 1 runs from Ciudad Expo (west) to Olivar Quintos (east), serving the Expo area (Ciuidad Expo, in Mairena del Aljarafe), the university (at Puerta de Jerez stop), the city centre and some railway stations (San Bernardo, Guadaira).
