Orléans east-west line to be tramway

The Council of the Urban Community in the French city of Orléans decided on 25 March that the second segregated transit line should also be built as a tramway. Elections after completion of the north-south tramway brought an anti-tram mayor to power, and various guided bus options were investigated. However a new study has concluded that a tramway is still the best option, and this is the decision that has been confirmed.
