Alstom will supply 10 extra Citadis trams to the Bordeaux Metropole, supplementing the fleet of trams already in circulation on the approximatley 49 miles of track that make up the network. Bordeaux has ordered 115 Citadis since the year 2000 and owns one of the largest tram fleets in France.

The new Citadis tramsets will enter service in 2018. They are identical to the previous ones and are equipped with the APS ground-level power supply system.

The trams can accommodate more than 300 passengers each, equivalent to over three buses. Citadis offers optimal on-board journey quality with a fully low floor, air conditioning, a video surveillance system and audio and visual information. Up to 98% recyclable, Citadis helps to preserve the environment.

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.
