Launch of Line 3 of the Tram

Launch of Line 3 of the Tram

Three months earlier than initially scheduled and before the last stage of the overall project intended to improve urban and suburban transport, Line 3 of the Tram of Nice is beginning service on 13 November 2019.

With its 7-kilometre route between Terminal 2 of the Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and the heart of the Saint-Isidore District, it covers 11 stops (5 of which are shared with Line 2 running East-West), Line 3 connects the major centres of the Eco-Valley: Airport, Grand Arénas, Saint-Augustin Multimodal Exchange Pole, Nice-Méridia, Allianz Riviera Stadium, Nice Valley Shopping Centre and the Saint-Isidore District.

Launching Line 3 will open up the Saint-Isidore District with service to the Allianz Riviera Eco-Stadium (with obvious advantages when matches are scheduled), the future Ikea store (under construction) as well as the city-centre and Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and Nice-Méridia District.

In 2026, there should be 11,400 inhabitants, 54,000 new housing units and 25,000 jobs in the catchment area along the tramway.

The next and final stage of improvement of this transport network will continue Line 2, connecting Avenue Jean-Médecin with the Lympia Port, by 14 December 2019.

By 2026, Line 1 should reach L’Ariane District and a 4th Line should take passengers to the neighbouring towns of Saint-Laurent-du-Var and Cagnes-sur-Mer from Nice-Saint-Augustin.
