— Line 1, shortened to L1 and known as “Hospital de Bellvitge - Fondo”, coloured red and often simply called Línia vermella (“Red Line”), is the second oldest metro line in Barcelona, after L3. It is operated by Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB). It appeared as a means to join the rail stations the city had in the 1920s. It has been growing since then to become, as of 2007, a large line made up of 30 stations, the network’s busiest. These stations are architecturally homogenous, and as in the case of most metro lines in Barcelona, ornamentation is virtually absent from them. Some of them are improving their artificial lighting.
— Line 3, currently known as Zona Universitària - Trinitat Nova, coloured green and often simply referred to as Línia verda (“Green line”), is a metro line in Barcelona operated by TMB, and therefore part of the fare-integrated ATM transport network of the urban region. This V-shaped line is the result of the junction of two related lines: the original L3 and L3B, in 1982. The central section of L3 has the city’s oldest metro stations, built in the mid-1920s, with additions almost every decade since then. All of L3 stations are underground.
— Line 6 or L6, coloured navy blue, (currently terminating at Plaça Catalunya - Reina Elisenda) is the name of a Barcelona Metro and Metro del Vallès service in the city of Barcelona operated by FGC, and part of the ATM fare-integrated transport system. Originally one among many other urban lines of the FGC network, and previously numbered U6, it shares tracks with other services in several stations, except the ones exclusive to its separate branch. L6 links Plaça de Catalunya, the city centre, with the district of Sarrià-Sant Gervasi. In the future the service will be extended westwards, eventually reaching the Monastery of Pedralbes and the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona.
