The J ren Commuter Rail is a commuter train service operated along the western-most part of the S rland Line in J ren, Norway. It is operated by the Norwegian State Railways with nine Class 72 electric multiple units. The service acts as a commuter rail connecting Stavanger to its suburbs, including Sandnes, and to towns further south, in Klepp, Time, H and Eigersund. Although passenger services have operated along the lines since 1878, the commuter train service was inaugurated in 1992 with a significant increase of service, using existing rolling stock.
