Newcastle's "mini-metro" is 77.5 km long,, 2 line metro which includes a variety of tunnel sections, including a 6 km tunnel section in the city center. Known as the Tyne & Wear Metro, the 60 station subway lines opened for business in 1980. Much of the rights of way include some of the world's first urban electric railway corridors. One section between
Tyne Dock and Chichester has been in use for over 170 years.
In addition to Newcastle's ever expanding metro, plans are now in the works for a tramway.
