Flexity has the interchangable cabins, am not really sure about Alstom.

I'm surprised nobody posted pics of our funky tramway here in Montpellier. It's a 400,000+ inhabitants city located in south of France:


Lines 1 (2000, 15km, the blue one with birds) & 2 (2006, 20km, the funky one).
Inside line 1:

Inside line 2:


2 other lines, designed by Christian Lacroix (a famous fashion designer), will open in 2012. here's the map:

And heres the livery of the third line:

You can also notice each line has a different face too...

I suppose that the tram will replace the current north-south busway.





2012 seems too close, there was no work in the city when I went here in June.

It is quite a good news, Tours metro area is not far to the 400,000 inhabitants.
As the largest city in Centre region, it needed a real urban transportation network.
Orléans the second largest city of the region (370,000 inh metro) opened its first line in 2000 and has its second line u/c.

"La Communauté d’agglomération de Rouen présidé par Laurent Fabius a choisi la rame Citadis d’Alstom pour renouveler le parc de son tramway, communément appelé à Rouen “métro“, a-t-on appris mardi. La commande porte sur 27 rames pour un marché qui s’élève à 90 M€.

Le modèle retenu est le véhicule le plus gros de la gamme Citadis. Il mesure 42 mètres de long sur 2,40 mètres de large et peut transporter 302 passagers dont 70 assis, soit l’équivalent de 4 autobus. La capacité supplémentaire sur une journée sera de 38.300 passagers par rapport aux 28 rames – également Alstom – acquises à partir de 1994 lors de la mise en service du premier tronçon du métro. Les nouvelle rames constitueront également une avancée en terme d’accessibilité avec un plancher bas intégral à hauteur de quai, indique la Communauté d’agglomération. Elles sont recyclables à 98% et consomment 10% d’énergie en moins. Son design, c’est à dire la coque avant et la cabine de conduite est modulable selon les goûts du réseau.

Les rames Citadis, conçues et assemblées dans l’usine Alstom de la Rochelle, seront mises en circulation en 2012 sur le réseau constitué de deux lignes en “Y“ renversé, le tronc commun desservant le centre de Rouen, rive droite (en souterrain sur 1,7 km) et rive gauche. Une ligne dessert ensuite Sotteville-les-Rouen, Saint-Etienne du Rouvray où se trouve technopôle du Madrillet. L’autre ligne dessert Petit-Quevilly et Grand-Quevilly. En 2008, il y a eu 15,5 millions de voyages sur le réseau.

A la construction du réseau qui est exploité par la TCAR (groupe Veolia), les stations ont été conçues pour accueillir des rames de plus grande capacité avec une longueur de quai de 60 mètres prenant en compte l’éventuel doublement des rames."

They will look like similar to new ones of Orléans.

Rouen will remplace the current TFS with new Citadis, to provide a better capacity.


As these tram cars are still recent, this rolling stock will move to Grenoble after a renovation.

This line was opened in 1978 (last extension in 2007), it is 9.3 km long and serve 14 stations.
Unlike other metro of France, Lyon subway trains run on the left.

Siemens selected for Rennes metro Line B

16 November 2010



FRANCE: Mayor of Rennes Daniel Delaveau announced on November 16 that Siemens has been selected as preferred bidder by transport authority Rennes Métropole to build the city’s second driverless metro line. The €200m contract will be submitted to the city council for ratification on November 18.

Siemens Mobility France will be responsible for initial studies, systems engineering, project management, commissioning and maintenance for the turnkey project. The company will supply 19 Cityval two-car trainsets, Trainguard MT CBTC signalling, platform screen doors, telecommunications equipment and an operational control centre and depot.

The rubber-tyred Cityval is based on the Neoval concept developed by Siemens in conjunction with Lohr Industries. It uses the Translohr guidance system comprising two V-shaped rollers tilted at 45° which run along a central rail. The trains will be manufactured by Lohr in Alsace. The air-conditioned vehicles will have through gangways, large windows, real-time passenger information and CCTV video surveillance. Maximum operating speed is 80 km/h.

Line B will be 12·6 km long, running from Mermoz in the southwest to Champs Blancs in the northeast with 15 stations. The central section between Cleunay and Le Gast will pass under the city centre in a bored tunnel while the Cleunay-Mermoz and Le Gast-Chateaubriand sections will be cut-and-cover. The final 3·3 km from Chateaubriand to Champs Blancs will be elevated. Interchange to Line A will be provided at Sainte-Anne and Gares. Revenue service is envisaged in 2018.

Siemens previously supplied Rennes with automation technology and 16 rubber-tyred driverless VAL 208 cars for the 8·5 km Line A which opened in March 2002.
