The capital of the German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia has a low-floor tram system with a route length of approx. 50 kilometres as well as a high-floor light rail system with a system length of approx. 70 kilometres. It is connected by two interurban routes to neighboring transport companies: the U79 connects Duisburg with Duisburg, on this line also cars of the DVG Duisburg are in service. The U76 makes a connection to Krefeld. Since the Krefeld tram runs on metre-gauge, it can only run on the route to Rheinstraße in Krefeld, which is equipped with a mixed-gauge track. The Düsseldorf tram also runs to the neighboring city of Ratingen.
