Le tramway de Rabat ne circule qu'en double-rame de 2*32m. 152 places assises, et 580 passengers.





On doit recevoir des rames uniques (pratique pour les heures creuses) mais personne ne les a encore vu.

Happy to see that Rabat, a so called 3rd world's city is now much developed, and they are much aware about air pollution. Tram is very much eco-friendly, ant the tramway network is truly smart.



However, I saw in www.subways.net that it is a phto of Rabat tram. So are there two types of rolling stock?

Rabat is one of the latest addition in African tram systems. Thankfully, so-called dark-continent is now competing with many of the modern, environment-conscious cities, and Rabat can proudly say that they are now running a trendy tram network with high speed, reserved track and smart designed tram system.

Please try to answer these -
1) Is there any plan to extend the network with new lines? If yes, please write some details and post a complete map with planned extensions.
2) I heard due to more ease traffic jam, Rabat is now thinking about a metro system, is it right? If yes, please write some details and post a complete map with metro lines & planned extensions.
3) Reserved or unreserved - which type of track layout is common in Rabat tramway network?
4) Which is the busiest tram terminus?
5) Which termini have interchange facility with suburban rail network?
6) Where is/are the depot(s) of the tramway network?

And a different question, will the next tram of Africa, i.e. – Casablanca’s tramway be opened in 2012, if not then when?

No. This is a photo of LYON (France) tram, located here precisely in Villette Street, near main railway station

Here is a map of the extensions of the current network :


As you can see an extension is planned for the first line it will reach Temara (suburb of Rabat) and Tabriquet (Salé) and 2 additional lines will be built (L3 and L4). You can get more informations here :

RABAT-SALÉ | Tramway | Line 1 Extension | Madinat Irfane > Hay Ryad > Temara | #Project
RABAT-SALÉ | Tramway | Lines L4 & L4bis | Rabat Centre Ville > Sala Al Jadida - Al Sahat Al Kabira | #Project
RABAT-SALÉ | Tramway | Lines L3 | Rabat Centre Ville > Akrach | #Project

Indeed, Rabat is now thinking of a metro line but the construction didn't start yet. Here is a map of the proposed line :


The Tram depot is located in Salé (Hay Karima) :


Casablanca's tramway will be open in December 2012 :
CASABLANCA | Tramway | 1 Line | 30 km | 6,4 MMDH |(12/12/2012) | #U-C

Im not much into the tramway systems, but as for now, the Casablanca tramway is still planned to be opened this year indeed.

Go-ahead for Rabat light rail extension
Monday, March 02, 2015



RABAT Municipal Council voted unanimously on February 25 to approve the first extension to the two-line light rail network in the Moroccan capital since the opening of the initial 19km phase of the Rabat-Salé Tramway in 2011

Tenders are due to be issued within the next few months for contracts to extend Line T2 2.3km southwest from its current terminus at Moulay Youssef Hospital to the intersection of Al Kifah Boulevard and Assalam Boulevard

Extensions are planned on both sides of L2. An extension of L1 (Rabat side) is also planned. We hope works will start later this year.
