The Rabat Salé Tramway Company (STRS), Morocco, has received the first two of the 22 Alstom Citadis trams ordered in 2017, which will enter services on the 7-km extension of Line 2 at Rabat and Salé.
The 32-metres long trams will be coupled together to transport up to 606 passengers. Low flooring throughout the trams as well as 12 doors per side facilitate passenger circulation and accessibility for all, in particular mobility-impaired passengers.
Their design, customised for perfect integration into the urban landscape of the city, will be the same as that of the vehicles already in circulation.
The 22 new trams will be kept at the Hay Karima maintenance centre in Salé and will be added to the 44 Alstom Citadis trams already in circulation since May 2011. The new trams will ensure a continued frequency of one tram every eight minutes for line 1 and one every nine minutes for line 2.
