30 km LRT

The 4 line 32 km Métro Léger de Tunis opened in 1985.
Although sometimes referred to by locals as the "light subway", the metro is completely above ground. Aside from Cairo, it is the only metro system on the African continent. This may change with the recent go aheads for subways in Algiers and Casablanca.

      Do the vehicles look a lot like the Hannover, Germany LRT?
