The first section Lines M1 and M2 of this driverless metro, connecting Nørreport in central København south to Vestamager (M1) in the Ørestad development area and the short branch to Lergravsparken (M2), opened in October 2002 (12·2 km, 11 stations) and extended west from Nørreport to Vanløse (5·2 km, 5 stations) during 2003. The Lergravsparken branch was extended south to the airport in September 2007 (Line M2: 4·6 km, 5 stations). Central sections are tunnelled with the majority of route at-grade or on elevated alignment.

The fully-tunnelled Cityringen Line M3 opened on September 29, 2019 (15·5 km, 17 stations), and the first of two branches forming Line M4 northeast from Østerport to Orientkaj (2·4 km, 2 stations) opened on March 28, 2020. Services start at København H and call at six stops on the south side of the Cityringen. A second branch southwest to Ny Elleberg (5·5 km, 5 stations) is under construction for planned opening in 2024.

Also under construction is a light rail line connectiong Ishøj in the southwest with Lyngby to the north along the city’s No.3 ring road, interchanging with five of the S-Tog routes (28 km, 29 stops). Scheduled to open in 2025, the line will be operated by 27 four-section LRVs from Siemens.
