Alstom will supply seven Citadis trams to Lyon, France-based SYTRAL (Syndicat des Transports de l’Agglomération Lyonnaise) in addition to the fleet of trams already in circulation on the 38-mile rail network.

The order, worth over $21 million, represents the exercise of an option on a contract signed in 2011. SYTRAL, which has ordered 92 Citadis since 1998, owns one of the biggest tram fleets in France.

The new Citadis trams will be identical to those in circulation on line T3. At 141 feet long, they will be able to transport up to 400 passengers, equivalent to six buses1. Constructed of 99% recycleable materials, the Citadis trams offer a fully low floor configuration, air conditioning, large windows and a video surveillance system. 
 
The trams will be produced in Alstom’s manufacturing sites in France: La Rochelle for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the traction equipment, Villeurbanne for the on-board electronics and Saint-Ouen for the design.

(1) Based on an average capacity of 6 passengers per m2 and 66 people per bus.
