Cagliari light rail, commercially known as Metrocagliari, is a light rail line that serves the town of Cagliari and part of its metropolitan area, in Sardinia, Italy.

It was inaugurated in 2008, after the renovation and the modernization of the previous narrow gauge railway system that operated in the urban area of Cagliari. It currently has eight stops and the line to the Policlinico-University Campus stop is under construction. It is expected to be inaugurated in 2014. The line Repubblica-Matteotti line, very important because it will connect the tram with the transportation hub of the city, home to the train and suburban buses station, and most of the local bus station, is in the final design stages and it is expected that the work can begin in 2014.
