The Société des Transports de Rabat-Salé (STRS) has signed a €45 million contract with Alstom for the supply of 22 Citadis trams.

Since the network was launched in May 2011, the number of users has steadily increased, which has led STRS to add two new lines and add to its existing fleet of 44 Citadis trams.

The 32m-long Rabat-Salé trams will be coupled to enable them to transport up to 606 passengers.

Alstom’s Morocco managing director Brahim Soua said: “We are delighted by this new order, which reflects the shared trust between Alstom and STRS.

“We are also proud to continue supporting the development of sustainable mobility in the urban area of Rabat-Salé through ecological urban transport systems.”
