Alstom to supply Brest and Dijon

The French towns of Brest and Dijon, which opted to join forces to pool their requirements and so reduce costs, have announced their decision to select Alstom to supply 52 Citadis trams at a cost of more than EUR 100 million. Brest will receive 20 trams with the remaining 32 going to Dijon.

The Citadis trams will be designed at Alstom's Valenciennes site with five other sites, Tarbes, Ornans, Le Creusot, Villeurbanne, and La Rochelle involved in their manufacture.
