Once the largest tramway in Europe, the tramway network contracted to one line by 1960 and since then some new lines have been restored or constructed, resulting in the current three line system.

  • 12: Palettes / Moillesulaz via Bachet-de-Pesay
  • 14: P+R Bernex / CERN or Meyrin-Gravière
  • 15: Palettes / Nations via Acacias

Junctions at Stand, Bel-Air, and Plainpalais allow routing of trams from one outer branch to another. It appears that as recently as 2007, six different routings were offered from outer terminal through the center city to some other outer terminal but as of May 2012, the official map shows only the above three routes. The Association Genevoise du Musée des Tramways operates a tourist tram service on the first Sunday of each month.
