The metro and tram in Valencia

Lines

The metro network in Valencia has a total of nine lines. Six of these are metro, and the remaining three (lines 4, 6, and 8) are tram. Most metro lines connect towns outside the city (north, south, and west of it), passing by the urban centre itself.

The old quarters of the city (the area within the old city walls) are at the moment off-limits for the metro. Most lines go around it in a C shape, passing either north or south of it.
