Alstom to supply 12 Citadis trams

Posted on October 22, 2014

Alstom signed a framework agreement with the Communauté des Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS, the Strasbourg Transport Co.) for the supply of 50 Citadis trams. The first part of the agreement concerns an order for 12 trams, worth a total of approximately $52 million.

The trams will be added to the existing CTS fleet as part of the extension of lines A and D. They will serve the Illkirch-Graffenstaden town center, which has considerably been expanded over recent years and will also run on the cross-border line linking the center of Strasbourg in France with Kehl in Germany. These trams are the first in France to cross a border.

The Citadis trams in Strasbourg will be the first to be approved to German Federal BoStrab regulations covering the construction and operation of tram services in Germany. The trams will have a capacity of 288 passengers. They will be fitted with LED lighting and full glass doors, enhancing the passengers’ sense of comfort and security. To conform to the PRM (People with Reduced Mobility) decree, the trams will be fitted with accessible buttons for opening doors, wider seats and zones reserved for wheelchair users and pushchairs.

The trams are expected to enter service by the end of 2016.
