Description:
The Grorud Line () is a line on the Oslo Metro between Tøyen and Vestli in Oslo, Norway. Running mixed at-grade and through tunnels, it runs through the northern part of Groruddalen, serving such neighborhoods as Grorud, Romsås and Stovner. The line is served by Line 5 of the metro. North of Carl Berners plass, the Ring Line branches off. This section is also served by lines 4 and 6. The line is owned by Kollektivtransportproduksjon and operated by Oslo T-banedrift on contract with Ruter using MX3000 trains. Line 5 runs eight times per hour during the day, while lines 4 and 6 run every 15 minutes. Line 4 only runs northwards, while Line 6 only runs southwards. The line is the busiest branch of the metro, with 40,000 daily riders.
