Entry into service of the Tunis tram

09/25/2007 AT 19:27

The new trainsets will make it possible to increase the transport capacity of the “light metro” by 5% and to relieve the pressure on other forms of public transport.
In all, Alstom will supply 30 trams between now and March 2008, to operate on line 1 of the Tunis tram. 18 kilometres long, the line will link Tunis with Ben Arous.

The Tunis Citadis tram has been designed and is being manufactured entirely by Alstom Transport's sites at Tarbes (traction drive), Le Creusot (bogies), Ornans (motors), Villeurbanne (on-board electronic systems) and La Rochelle (design and integration).

Tunis is the first city on the African continent to equip itself with Citadis trams.

Measuring 30 metres in length, the unidirectional trams will operate in the colours of Transtu (green-coloured coaches with a white stripe in the middle).
The features of the product respond to Transtu's desire to offer its passengers the best possible quality of life while on board.
