Light rail use more modern rolling stock than trams and also run on separate designated corridors for faster travel times.
The first line (41) was opened in 2002, and runs through the west part of the city (from FC Steaua Bucureşti's Ghencea stadium in the south-west, to the Casa Presei Libere in the north). (41) tram line is single on its route, meeting other lines only at the end, the 42 route at Piața Presei Libere and the 47 route at Ghencea.
While not exactly light rail, tram lines 32 and 21 can be considered as being light rail due to their low waiting times, superior speed and segregated pathways. They also use new or modernised rolling stock. 32 is single until Calea Ferentari where it meets 8 for a short distance and 23, 27, 7 and 47 from 11 Iunie until its end at Piața Unirii. 21 is mainly single on its route, sharing the line and stops with tram route 16 and bus route 605 from Piața Sf. Gheorghe to Strada Paleologu. At Bucur Obor (Șoseaua Colentina), it meets for a short distance route 36, although they have no common stops. From Obor to the other end, it is again single.
Lines 1 and 10 are sometimes considered light rail; due to recent modernisations, these routes use upgraded tracks for almost the entire line and mostly new rolling stock. They form a ring around central Bucharest, with line 10 running services clockwise (from Romprim - Piața Sudului - Șura Mare - Șoseaua Viilor - Pasaj Basarab - Bucur Obor - Pod Mihai Bravu - Piața Sudului - Romprim) and line 1 running services anti-clockwise (from Romprim - Piața Sudului - Pod Mihai Bravu - Bucur Obor - Pasaj Basarab - Șoseaua Viilor - Șura Mare - Piața Sudului - Romprim).
