Palermo

subway, light rail under construction

A three line LRT is currently under construction. Most of the route will be street running.

Palermo also has two urban rail lines that run, in part, underground. The lines are referred to by locals as Lines A and B of the Metro. 
Subway navigator also shows a six station subway. And, planning of a 2 km VAL subway between the city center and the airport has also been reported.

According to the Italian Electric Cities Project, "The urban service of Palermo was opened in 1990 exploiting the old port railway. Subsequently the service has been extended to the Trapani line, waiting for its extension to the new Punta Raisi airport terminus. At present the new Palazzo Reale-Orleans station is under construction.

According to online, "Palermo’s AMA has received an 88M euro loan from European Investment Bank toward constructions of three new streetcar lines to be in place by 2005 – Calatafime Line will be 4.4 KM with 12 stops; the Leonardo DaVinci, will be 4.8 KM long, 13 stops and the Rorcella Line 5.6 KM with 15 stops." As of 2009, a tram line is under construction, and the VAL is still being debated.
