posted on 25th Apr 2023 15:08

On 25 April 2023 Alstom has been awarded a contract by Quebec City for the supply of 34 Citadises for the city’s tramway project. The contract, with a total value of around 900 million EUR, includes the design and supply of the rolling stock and maintenance for a period of 30 years. The contract also includes an option for a maximum of five trams, including maintenance.

The trams will be developed by Alstom engineers based in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville - Alstom’s headquarters in the Americas located on the south shore of Montreal - and will be assembled at its La Pocatière plant in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region.

The trams will be adapted to the climatic and topographical conditions of Quebec City. Comfortable, modern and spacious trams will run on a 19 km long line that will form the backbone of an improved public transit network for Quebec City. The tramway will offer an attractive transportation alternative to alleviate road congestion, reduce the impact of mobility on the environment and air quality, improve the quality of life for residents and further enhance the attractiveness of Quebec City.
