The Metropolis of Lyon (French: Métropole de Lyon, French pronunciation: [metʁɔpɔlljɔ̃] ), also known as Grand Lyon (French pronunciation: [ɡʁɑ̃ljɔ̃], "Greater Lyon"), is a French territorial collectivity located in the east-central region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. It is a directly elected metropolitan authority encompassing the city of Lyon and most of its suburbs. It has jurisdiction as both a department and a métropole, taking the territory out of the purview of the department of Rhône. It had a population of 1,411,571 in 2019,[2] 37% of whom lived in the city of Lyon proper.

It replaced the Urban Community of Lyon on 1 January 2015, in accordance with the MAPAM Law [fr] enacted in January 2014.[3] The first direct metropolitan elections were held in March (1st round) and June (2nd round) 2020, leading to a victory by Europe Ecology – The Greens. The president of the metropolitan council has been Green leader Bruno Bernard since July 2020.
