This order, worth € 115 million[1], constitutes an option exercise under the framework agreement signed in 2018.

“This order is a fine mark of confidence from one of our long-standing customers. We have been working with SYTRAL for 40 years now to offer green, reliable, and comfortable mobility solutions that meet the expectations of Lyon’s passengers. SYTRAL is assured of having a proven, high quality equipment, as it benefits from the feedback from the nearly 3,000 Citadis trams sold to 60 cities around the world. With more than 140 Citadis trams planned to be in service, Lyon's network is a real showcase for French and Alstom know-how”, declared Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President, Alstom France.

SYTRAL's fleet currently consists of 34 Citadis trams of 43 metres long and 73 trams of 32 metres long, operating on 6 lines. With this latest option, SYTRAL's fleet (sytral.fr) will eventually reach 142 tramways, making it one of the largest fleets in France. It has been ordered in several instalments since 1998, with a first commissioning in 2000.

These new Citadis trams will be identical to the 15 43-metre trains delivered in 2020 and 2021, running on the T3 and T4 lines, whose special feature is a redesigned nose for better visibility and greater driving comfort. They can accommodate up to 287 passengers, the equivalent of 4 buses.

Alstom's Citadis trams offer optimum on-board travel quality with an integral low floor, air conditioning, a video surveillance system, as well as audio and visual information. Up to 98% recyclable, Citadis helps to preserve the environment.

The Lyon tramway embodies the expertise of the French railway industry, as the Citadis range was developed in France, at the Alstom site of La Rochelle. These new trams will be manufactured at 7 Alstom sites in France: La Rochelle for the design, assembly, testing and validation of the trainsets, Le Creusot for the bogies, Tarbes for some of the traction chain equipment, Aix-en-Provence for the tachometer, Valenciennes for the maintenance tools and supplies, and, in the Lyon metropolitan area, Villeurbanne for the on-board computer system and passenger information.

[1] this amount has been recorded in the last quarter of Alstom's 2020/2021 financial year
