San Raffaele Light Railway 

This is a light railway service connecting line 2 of the Milan Underground with the San Raffaele Hospital.

This transport link, created specially for patients, staff and students travelling between the city of Milan and the hospital, is an automated railway with no onboard staff, covering a distance of 682 metres on an elevated track.

On reaching Cascina Gobba on the M2 underground line, passengers transfer to the light railway without leaving the station, thus reaching the hospital entrance rapidly.
Passengers in wheelchairs can make use of a special ticket barrier with an entry-phone which they can use to contact the control room in case of need. The train carriages have reserved spaces equipped with safety devices for wheelchairs.

Visually impaired passengers can use the tactile strip to guide them from the end of the footbridge from the Cascina Gobba station to the entrance door of the central carriage of the train, passing through a dedicated ticket barrier. On descending from the train, the tactile strip runs from the San Raffaele Hospital station to the reception area and the emergency exits.

A service footbridge runs the entire length of the track, allowing passengers to leave the train safely in the event of an emergency evacuation.
