France: CAF to Supply 15 Trams to Marseilles

RTM (Régie des Transports Métropolitains) has contracted CAF to supply 15 new trams for Marseilles, France.

The contract is valued at 57 million EUR and includes an option to increase the number of ordered trams depending of future network extensions.

The design of the new trams is similar to that of the vehicles currently operating in the city, with a livery that evokes marine motifs

The new Urbos trams will consist of 7 units spanning a total length of 42.5 metres.

They will enter service on the city’s 3 existing lines, including the T3 line, which will soon be extended to the north and south of the city.

This project forms part of the region’s transport plan, which aims to improve its inhabitants’ standard of living by improving public transport infrastructures and services.

Marseille is the second most populated city in France after Paris, with approximately 900,000 inhabitants. RTM operates the city’s entire public transportation network, which includes three tramway lines, two underground lines and bus and ferry services.
