Alstom to supply five extra Citadis trams to Bordeaux Métropole

Posted on April 8, 2015

Alstom will supply five new Citadis trams to France’s Bordeaux Métropole, completing the existing fleet of 100 trams already in circulation on the approximately 49 miles of track, which makes up the network.

With a total of 105 trams ordered since the year 2000, Bordeaux will own one of the largest tram fleets in France.

The new Citadis trams, identical to the previous ones, will be equipped with the APS ground-level power supply. The trams will be able to accommodate between 220 and 300 passengers each, the equivalent of over three buses. The Citadis trams will offer 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 contributes to the preservation of the environment.

The trams will be produced at Alstom’s sites in France: at La Rochelle for the design and assembly, Ornans for the motors, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for the drive train equipment and Villeurbanne for the on-board electronics.
