The A line is the north-to-south main line of the Frankfurt U-Bahn. It is the oldest and longest line of the U-Bahn system. Served by four routes starting at Südbahnhof Railway Station in Sachenhausen, the A line runs through downtown Frankfurt up to Heddernheim Station in the north of the city, where it branches out to Ginnheim, Oberursel, Riedberg and Bad Homburg. The U9 service between Ginnheim, Riedberg and Nieder-Eschbach does not use the central section and tunnels of the line...
The Line A with its three connecting lines covers about half of the Frankfurt subway network and combines various upgrade standards, linking subway, elevated rail, railway and light rail sections. The Line A is the most important north–south axis in city traffic and runs from the South Station through the city and the Eschersheimer highway to Heddernheim.

During the construction of the tunnels for subway line A, different methods were used over the years. The easiest way was the construction of the section in the northwest city, since here the subway line had been taken into account as planned and was built together with the other buildings. The first phase of construction and its later extension to Theaterplatz were still completely open-plan. For this purpose, a correspondingly deep excavation pit was dug and secured with the aid of numerous st

The Line C is a line on the Frankfurt U-Bahn. It consists of the U6 and the U7. At the time of the line's inauguration in 1986, it ran from Enkheim to the Hauptwache and then continued along the Bockenheimer Landstrasse all the way up to Bockenheim and then continued to their terminus in Hausen for U7, whereas for U6, it then continued to their terminus in Praunheim.
The longer of the two branches of the line is used by the line U6 and is located on the median strip of the usually two-lane Ludwig-Landmann-Straße, which serves as an entry and exit road. The line, on which until 1986 the tram line 22 reversed, was already extended in the 1970s
The western end of the U7 runs at ground level on the central strip of the street on high way through the district Hausen. Unlike the route to the army road, it was only inaugurated in 1986, the railway line and received its own railway body and elevated platforms. The former her

Currently there are plans to extend the branch of the U6 from the Ostbahnhof along the Hanauer Landstraße to the Ratswegkreisel. Subsequently, the district of Fechenheim is to be reached on the current tram line in central position of the Hanauer highway. The planning is in some competition with the construction of the North-Main S-Bahn line to Hanau, because instead of the S-Bahn also an extension of the U6 to Hanau is possible. Since the city has decided in favor of the North-Main S-Bahn ...

The U-Bahn Line B is the second route in the network of the Frankfurt U-Bahn. It leads in west-east direction from the central railway station over the old town to Konstablerwache, where it splits into two branches to Bornheim and Preungesheim. Originally planned as an independent main line, the D line represents an extension of the U4 to Bockenheimer Warte from the central railway station. The northern branch to Preungesheim was opened in 1974 as B1 and operates since May 1978 as line U5. A lar
The B-line can be divided into three sections: in the common line used by the lines U4 and U5 between the main train station and Konstablerwache and in two route branches, in which the trunk line branches out at the Konstablerwache.

Until the former final stop Seckbacher Landstraße the route runs completely ...
