The broadest range

On new and recent lines but also on legacy networks, standard and customised multi-articulated Citadis trams have transformed close to 40 cities across continents, connecting districts with smooth and high capacity systems. With the widest variety of solutions for catenary-free operation, Citadis preserves tree-filled and historical neighbourhoods. Trams can enhance the driving experience, by being also fitted with Alstom’s smart solutions, such as ODAS™ and COMPAS™ for drivers’ assistance and ergonomic cabs.

Enthralling experiences aboard

Citadis multi-articulated trams have been designed to delight the passenger. Their large windows offer a wide view of the city, while the ergonomic interiors and pleasant materials, climate control and real-time passenger information displays ensure a comfortable and convenient ride. Wide doors allow smoother passenger exchange at stops and therefore lower dwell time and the 100% low floor throughout the vehicle enables both accessibility and easy circulation within the vehicle. Everything is deployed for an enthralling experience.

Flexity tram for Berlin

Supporting our customers, from design to end of service life

Citadis trams offer cost-effective layouts with a variety of length, width and track gauge compatibility, offering maximized capacity for operators. Vehicles are modular and flexible. They can be configured to match changing ridership levels, by being coupled to form multiple-unit trainsets, enabling an increased overall capacity. In addition to its high energy efficiency, thanks to proven energy savings and weight reduction, Citadis reinforces its green mobility credentials through the recyclability of up to 98% of its parts. With over 30 years’ experience, Alstom has supported customers throughout their Citadis lifecycle from the design phase to maintenance in service.
