List of suburban and commuter rail systems

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an alphabetical listing of cities and countries that have commuter or suburban railways that are currently operational and in service. Commuter and suburban rail systems are train services that connect city centres with outer suburbs or nearby cities, with most passengers doing work or school commuting. Unlike metros, these systems usually operate on main line tracks unsegregated from other rail traffic. And unlike light rail, they also usually have lower service frequencies but generally offer multiple services throughout work days and peak hours.

Notes[edit]

  1. Fortaleza is in the process of converting its suburban rail network into a full metro system.
  2. Sydney, Melbourne, Berlin, Copenhagen, Hamburg, London, and Paris (RER) have hybrid systems, with trains running as metro-like services (on segregated track—usually in tunnel—and with high frequency) in their inner cities, but as main line commuter services in the suburbs. Nonetheless, the International Association of Public Transport (French: L’Union internationale des transports publics (UITP)) does not consider these systems to be "metro" systems.[18]
