The first section, Route A, opened in 1975 with lines between Waterloo and Hauptbahnhof. In 1976 expanded to Lahe and in 2006 expanded from Lahe (now Paracelsus) to Altwarmbüchen. Finally in 2010, it reached Schierholzstraße.

Route B was born as a route that crosses the city from north to south in 1979 (from Werderstraße to Kröpcke) and has continued growing to the south.

Route C was launched in the year 84, between Kröpcke and Steintor.
