CTS NETWORK EXTENSION PROJECTS

To provide the best possible response to the mobility requirements of the Strasbourg metropolitan population, the CTS, under the auspices of the public transport authority Eurométropole de Strasbourg, has constantly developed its network. Here you can discover all the on-going projects.

The extension of this line into Germany aims, among other things, to play a key role in the development of cross-border transport, improving services to the port zone and becoming the vector for the urban development of the Deux Rives sector which will help to refocus the metropolitan area around the Rhine. The 2.7 km extension requires several substantial items of infrastructure to be built, including a bridge over the Rhine.
