Play it again – tram

The king of Morocco has launched the first tram line in Casablanca.

King Mohammed VI joined Alstom staff to wave off the first of 74 Citadis trams. The 20 mile line connects east and southwest districts of Casablanca with the city centre and has 48 stops.

Citadis trams are 65 metres long in double units and can carry up to 606 passengers with a capacity of up to 250,000 passengers per day. Metallic red livery contrasts with the brightness of the city and interior designs are in accord with Moroccan style.

Air conditioning, large tinted windows and information displays in Arabic and French all guarantee a good trip for passengers. The Casablanca Citadis trams were manufactured and assembled in France at the Reichshoffen factory.
