Here a short presentation of the public transport of Strasbourg City ( 275, 000 inhabitants, french urban area almost 800, 000 hab, binational area 1, 150 000 hab, France.


Given that the subjects on the public transportation drown themselves in the subject of the urban news of the city, so much to create a unique subject on transport in Strasbourg and its region.


Six lines.

64km.

75 stations.

At the level of the heavy transport:

BEFORE 2018:

STREETCAR ON IRON - Extension lines D of Aristide Briand towards Kehl-Bahnhof (Germany) - 2.8km/Inauguration 2017 towards the Port of the Rhine/Work in progress
- Extension lines D of Kehl-Bahnhof towards Kehl Rathaus - 1km - Inauguration planned by 2018 - Extension lines D of Rotunda towards Potteries - 1.7km - on 2013/Inaugurated
- Extension lines A Hautepierre link towards the Park of the sports of Hautepierre - 1.1km - on 2013/Inaugurated
- Extension lines A Parc of Sports towards the Top of Strasbourg/South of Oberhausbergen - on 2020? - 1km (do not seem anymore to the agenda) - Extension


DRUNK to HIGH LEVEL OF SERVICE(DEPARTMENT)

- Creation of a new line of BHNS between the European Space of the Company and the station of Strasbourg, via(including) the district of Cronenbourg - 5km - on 2013 / Inaugurated.
- Extension lines G of BHNS towards Place de l'Étoile: 2020?

After 2018:
Various projects of bypass
Circular line around the city center (central Station / Place(Square) of Haguenau / Orangery / Esplanade / Place de l'Étoile / Dairy) in BHNS and either in streetcar on iron.
1st circular line crowns between districts and cities (By bus at High Level of Service(Department))

from wikipedia :



The new design for the line who will go between Strasbourg and Kehl, Germany :


the extension for line D finishing and opening in April 2017 :



There is some part underground ( tunnel of 1,5km, and a new part on line D) like the central station :


There is almost 300, 000 users by day. And it's increasing in the future.





Comments are welcome, :)

Extension project of line D between Aristide Briand and Kehl.


Aristide Briand is the current terminus of line D.

New bridges have been constructed for this extension.

Pont Citadelle : this bridge connects two districts of Strasbourg, Neudorf and Port du Rhin.


The other bridge makes a link between Strasbourg and Kehl. It's also symbolic, because it's a link between France and Germany. This new bridge over the Rhine has been designed by the architect Marc Barani.

That's right for the black stripes it's a huge mess...

I would add that about the blue leds, it's a real pity they don't have.

But I disagree on the global look... they look better than ther old one citadis...


That's kind of fresh in the actual network...

More Citadis trams ordered for Strasbourg
03 Feb 2017



FRANCE: Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois has exercised an option to order 10 more Alstom Citadis trams for €28m. This will bring the number of Citadis trams operated by CTS to 63, with the first order placed in 2003.

The option announced on February 3 forms part of a framework agreement signed in November 2014 for up to 50 trams. Deliveries of the 12 trams from the base order, worth €41m, are due to be completed in May, the first having arrived in Strasbourg in October

Some pictures of the inauguration, the bridge on the Rhine is illuminated during the night...

A lot of people around for the symbol ( party during two days and free trams and boats), and both part of the Rhine will be transformed in the next years with new quarters, and specially cultural with the Ososphère !

Enjoy...:cheers:

Strasbourg| Public Transport

For many Strasbourg is the model for the new tram networks in Europe. It took me until June this year to eventually get there and it is a good network in a beautiful city.
