France: Alstom to Supply New Citadis Trams in Strasbourg

The Eurometropole of Strasbourg and Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS) have selected Alstom to supply new trams for the city of Strasbourg, France.

Initially, Alstom will deliver 12 Citadis trams in March 2025, followed by a further 10 units in the order’s second phase.

The framework agreement also provides the option for additional orders to be placed over the next 8 years depending on the city’s needs.

Alongside providing an increased level of service and comfort, the Citadis trams are expected to reduce energy consumption by at least 20% compared to the city’s current models.

Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France, said:

“Alstom is very proud to supply the Eurometropole’s new trams and to participate in the development of a greener and more innovative urban transport network. These new energy-efficient trams will also provide greater comfort for passengers. We would like to thank the Eurometropole of Strasbourg and the CTS for their renewed confidence in our latest generation Citadis tram solutions.”

The new trams will be 45 metres long and 2.4 metres wide. They will each have a capacity for up to 286 passengers and will be equipped with air conditioning and a dynamic passenger information system.

They will also be compatible with cross-border travel thanks to approval from BOStrab, the federal regulator for trams in Germany.
