The rubber-tyred metro systems that incorporate 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in) track have angle irons as guide bars along the roll ways. The Busan Subway Line 4, that lacks a rail track, has I-beams installed with the flanges being vertical. The Sapporo Municipal Subway, that lacks a rail track as well, has none.
