Tram loop Completed in Montpellier

Now you can take Tramline 4A clockwise and 4B anti-clockwise around the city center of one of the bigger southern France cities named Montpellier. The city is known for its stylish architecture and sits next to the Mediterranean sea. The tram system carries over 120000 passengers each day, so now its really nice that the town also got a circle!

More than 7 000 people attended an evening of dancing and music choreographed by Hamid El Kabouss to celebrate the inauguration of a 1·2 km extension of the Montpellier tram network on July 1. The extension adds three new stops and completes a ring of tram lines encircling the city centre.

The new section between Observatoire and Place Albert 1er has three stops at Saint-Guilhem – Couyrreau, Peyrou – Arc de Triomphe and Albert 1er – Cathédrale.

Services began on July 2, when Route 4 became a 9·2 km loop rather than a U-shaped route linking two separate city termini via the eastern suburbs. Route 4a runs clockwise at 8 min headways, with Route 4b running anti-clockwise.

So now, people that visits Montpellier can take the tram around in a loop. A great new way to see and get around. Also much cheaper than going with a touristic bus. Depends on how traveling person you are.
