Line 11, shortened to L11 and coloured light green, is line belonging to the Barcelona Metro network operated by TMB, and part of the ATM fare-integrated transport network. It is unusual in being actually an underground light rail line instead of a conventional metro line. It only has 5 stations as of 2007.


It is the latest addition to the main TMB network, having been opened in 2003. It serves the hilly and dense northern corner of Barcelona, from Trinitat Nova - where it links with L4 - towards Can Cuiàs. It's more accurately defined as a light rail-like addition to line 4, still built under the standards of a regular metro line, as the addition of new stations was under consideration, and is already taking place. The colour assigned to this line by TMB is intended to represent a mixture of the official colours of line 4 and line 3, which join it at Trinitat Nova, its —at least temporarily— starting point. Additional metro lines projected to be built in following years will probably be quite similar to L11, and their colours have been designed using the same convention.
