The capital of Burgundy is expanding its public transport offer. Two new tramlines commissioned in 2012 give inhabitants a fast, frequent alternative to bus travel. Plus one that emits less CO2 by using energy from renewable sources.

To develop its new tramway network, the town of Dijon joined forces with ENGIE through a 26-year public-private partnership (PPP). Thanks to this model, the town can offer its inhabitants 20 km of lines covered by 33 tramways.

A dense, frequent and fast network

Dijon’s two additional tramway lines combine safety with efficiency. The average interval between trams is five minutes, and passengers and pedestrians enjoy a high level of safety.

In the town centre, the interval is shortened to 2.5 minutes to ensure a fast and efficient service, with increased surveillance and checks to meet high security standards.
