Arrival of line D of the Bordeaux tramway
Since 2000, Bordeaux Métropole has embarked on an ambitious program promoting the mobility of its entire population. At the end of 2019, the new tram line D will link Bordeaux to Eysines in 32 minutes.
Line D will promote mobility in Bordeaux Métropole
Through the major projects launched in recent years - notably the addition of 33km of tram lines - Bordeaux Métropole wishes to become a benchmark in terms of mobility.
Among the works in progress, the deployment of the new D line over nearly 10km from Bordeaux to Le Bouscat, Bruges and Eysines concerns nearly 38% of a population and employment pool of 78,000 people.
As part of this reflection, it was urgent to improve the service to these very busy areas and to take into account the social, economic and environmental specificities of the northwest quarter of the Metropolis.
Facilitating access to the tramway, harmonizing the stations of the line in correspondence with other networks such as TransGironde or the SNCF, will help reduce car traffic and use public space in a different way.
Line D will also reinforce line C on the Quinconces - Gare Saint-Jean axis, one of the busiest in the tram network.
Finally, two auto-relay parks have been set up on the route of line D in order to offer users of the northwest quarter of the metropolis the possibility of diversifying their modes of transport according to their route.
Following specific Eysines development work planned for 2025, line D of the tram will directly serve 43% of residents and employees in the sector.
