Alstom has announced that they have received an order to build another 13 Citadis Dualis tram-trains for Île-de-France Mobilités and Transilien SNCF.
The order is worth approximately 70 million euros (around £63.4m).
11 trains will be used for Line T4 between Bondy, Aulnay-sous-Bois and Montfermeil Hospital and 2 trains will operate on Line T12 between Massy and Evry.
“Following the entry into commercial service of the Citadis Dualis tram-trains on line T4 in December 2019, and as we currently produce the trains for line T13, I am delighted that Alstom is continuing to deploy the tram-train solution in the Île-de-France region. This new exercise of options points to the relevance of this versatile transport solution and to the renewed trust of our customers, Île-de-France Mobilités and Transilien SNCF,” said Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom in France.
So far, 78 Citadis tram-trains are in operation in France, including those for Strasbourg in France.
