Jar is a station served both by the Oslo Metro and the Oslo Tramway located in Bærum, just west of Lysakerelva which divides Oslo and Bærum. The track is shared, the tram line (Lilleaker Line) joins with the rapid transit line (Kolsås Line) on the Oslo side of the river. The station's penthouse is yellow and contained a newspaper outlet.
Formerly, the entire line to Kolsås was part of the tram network. Since 2 December 2007 tram operations (line 13) have returned on this line from Jar to Bekkestua. Some tram runs, usually with SL79 units, run only as far as Jar where there is the turning loop they require.[dated info]
As of December 2010, the Tram line 13 will start running alternative trams (every 20 minutes) to Jar. The Underground line 2 also runs with an interval of every 15 minutes.
