Alstom is to supply 10 extra Citadis trams to the Bordeaux Metropole for a total amount of EUR 28 million, supplementing the fleet of trams already in circulation on the 79 kilometres of track that make up the network.
The new Citadis tramsets will enter service in 2018. They are identical to the previous ones and are equipped with the APS system . 44 metres long, they can accommodate more than 300 passengers each, equivalent to over 3 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.
Bordeaux has ordered 115 Citadis since the year 2000 and owns one of the largest tram fleets in France.
