Canberra Metro Operations (CMET) is the operator of light rail services in Canberra. Stage 1 was opened in April 2019 and extends from the city to Gungahlin via a 12 km route along Northbourne Avenue, the Federal Highway, Flemington Road and Hibberson Street. The route starts north of Alinga Street in the city and finishes east of Gungahlin Place on Hibberson Street in Gungahlin. It includes 13 stops. Light rail services run from 6.00 am until around 11.00 pm. Weekday services operate at frequencies of six minutes during peak hours and 10 to 15 minutes during off peak. Services operate every 15 minutes on weekends and public holidays. A fleet of 14 Light Rail Vehicles, each with five modules, were built by Spanish company Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles. They are similar to the Urbos 3 vehicles in service in Sydney. Plans for future extensions from the proposed city terminus include possible routes to Canberra airport, the Parliamentary Triangle, Belconnen and Woden. Stage 2 will extend from the city via Parkes and Barton to Woden.
