DESCRIPTION
Valenciennes first tram opened in 1881 (initial steam tram) and it was electrified in 1913. The original tram network closed in 1966.
The first modern tram line (T1) opened on July 2006 (Dutemple-Universitè) and it was extended on September 2007 (Dutemple-Espace Villars). T1 connects Espace Villars (west) with the university (east), passing through the city centre; it serves the railway station and the town hall (Hotel de Ville).
The second modern tram line (T2) opened on February 2014, running from Le Vieux-Condè Le Boulon (north) to Universitè (south); T1 and T2 share a common track section (Pont Jacob-Universitè).
