Line D of the Lyon Metro, with automatic trains running on tires and with no driver, and also known as MAGGALY (Métro Automatique à Grand Gabarit de l’Agglomération Lyonnaise) commenced operation under human control on September 4, 1991, between Gorge-de-Loup and Grange-Blanche. It was extended to Gare de Vénissieux on December 11, 1992, at which time it switched to automatic operation. On April 28, 1997, it was extended again to Gare de Vaise.
Being the deepest of the lines in Lyon, it was constructed mainly using boring machines and passes under both rivers, the Rhône and the Saône. At long, it is also the longest of the lines in Lyon.
