Ile-de-France transport authority STIF has placed a framework order with Alstom for up to 90 Citadis trams.
STIF has placed a firm order for 22 trams worth €70 million, with options for up to 68 additional vehicles. The new units will be used for lines T9 and T10.
The 44-metre trams will accomodate more than 300 passengers. They will also include Wi-Fi and dynamic route maps.
Delivery of the new vehicles will begin from the middle of 2019. The units will enter commercial service in October 2020.
Preparatory works on T10, which will link Clamart to Antony, are due to start next year.
