Of the urban lines, lines 3 and 9 were created as a light rail tram system in the 1980s. Today, line 3 is called a "fully protected" route, while line 9 is considered an ordinary tramway.
Line 4 has characteristics similar to line 3, although another type of tram vehicle is used. In any case, this line also includes long stretches of reserved sections to permit higher speeds.
On the line 3 light rail vehicles of the series 7000 were used.
