The Alstom Citadis trams of the Toulouse conurbation will from now on circulate on the T2 line, which has just entered commercial service. This new line, which comprises 3 stations over a distance of 2.4 kilometres, links the airport of Toulouse Blagnac to the centre of Toulouse. After Lyon, Toulouse is the second conurbation in France to have chosen the tram as its system of transport to ensure the link between the city centre and the airport.

Spanning a length of 32 metres and a width of 2.4 metres, every Citadis can transport up to 200 passengers. Its interior fittings, such as the fully low floor, air conditioning, video surveillance system, passenger counting system and audio and visual information system, offer optimal journey quality. Up to 98% recyclable, the 28 Citadis tram sets in circulation on the Toulouse network also contribute to preserving the environment.
