T10 Tramway Commences Passenger Service in Paris

Alstom’s ‘lumière’ Citadis trams have entered commercial service on the T10 tramway line in Paris.

This new 7-kilometre-long tramway connects La Croix de Berny to Jardin Parisien via Châtenay-Malabry and Le Plessis-Robinson in 20 minutes, serving 13 stations.

The T10 line will accommodate almost 25,000 passengers a day using 13 Citadis X05 trainsets ordered by Île-de-France Mobilités. These are each 45 metres long and able to carry up to 314 passengers.

This recent launch comes two years after the first ‘lumière’ tram entered service on line T9 in spring 2021.

Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France said:

“We are delighted to see the arrival today of the Citadis 'lumière' tram on Line T10 and to offer a new, reliable, comfortable, elegant, and modern transport solution to the residents of Hauts-de-Seine. As well as celebrating another successful milestone for this project, I would like to pay tribute to our employees and their commitment, who have enabled us to deliver this new project on time and to the level of quality expected by our customers and passengers.”

The ‘lumière’ tram features signature lighting that runs throughout the vehicle’s interior and exterior.

It also has 45% glass surfaces, 100% LED lighting, USB sockets, and 8 extra-large multimedia screens to provide dynamic route information.

The new units were designed and manufactured at Alstom’s La Rochelle site in France. Delivery of the trams began in August 2022 and was completed on schedule in April 2023, ready for the start of commercial service on 24 June 2024.
