Light Rail

Paris has several light rail or tram lines. They serve the suburbs at the edge of the metro lines. None of these lines are connected (yet). All the tram lines serve the periphery of Paris  More extensions/lines are under construction, and planned. Eventually the city limits will be ringed by trams making one complete loop around the city.
