Tampere
light rail (planned)

A 56.7km light rail line was rumored as under construction in this second largest Finnish city. The system plans called for 56.7 km including a
2.7 km subway with 4 stops.  Thirty-nine of the 56.7 km would run on existing rail tracks.  The current route and configuration appears to be unsure, despite the false report of the beginning construction. According to Railway Gazette, the design phase of the now 23.5 km route will begin in Juy 2015, with an expected opening date in 2019.

Once operating, it will be the world's northernmost urban transit system.
