Line A of the Bordeaux tram network opened to the public in December 2003 while Lines B and C were opened the following year; all three lines have been extended in successive phases. Adopted back in 1997, the tram project is part of the city’s plan to renovate its historic center: restoring facades, widening and improving pavements, and creating cycle lanes. Today, the Bordeaux network covers 60 km, has 111 stations and transports over 280,000 passengers a day. A fourth line (Line D) is planned for 2019.
