Nice Côte d’Azur Airport now connected to the very center of the city.
Since late June 2019, tram line 2 had provided optimum access to the city center from both terminals of Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and a connection with line 1.
Then from this autumn, the tram will reach its terminus at the Port of Nice. It will then take 26 minutes to cross Nice from West to East and travel the 11 kilometers and 20 stations.
2,400 new trees were planted and artworks are already in place alongside the new track. By means of ground-based charging solutions, along with a storage system which uses super-capacitors on the roof of the tram, line 2 has no overhead wires.
Up to 200,000 travelers a day are anticipated; users whose way of using their personal vehicle will be completely changed. The new tram line will remove 20,000 cars a day from Nice.
