Rolling Stock

There are four main types of rolling stock in service:

Lines U1, 2, 3 and 4 use standard U, U2 and U11 stock. These trains are operated automatically using the LZB system; they collect the current (750V DC) from a third rail. Line U6 uses light rail stock of the E6/c6 and T/T1 types with overhead current collection and optic signalling.
