The rennes Metro is very new (last 5 years) and is a quick and easy way to get around the city.

After Lille and Toulouse, Rennes is the third French city to introduce a VAL metro system (short for Véhicule automatique léger). The first line is a north-south route through the city centre. the metro started operating regularly on 16 March 2002.
As a university student is was a great way to get around town. The metro closes fairly late so you can go out till reasonably late then catch the metro home.
It is not as big or confusing as in Paris and is more comfortable ,plus the infrastructure is a lot newer.
