Light Rail Transit

Light Rail Transit

From concept to reality with SYSTRA

SYSTRA is the benchmark engineering company for the design and construction of modern light rail transit systems, with projects in more than 40 towns and cities around the globe amounting to more than 500 kilometres of light rail transit lines.

In France, SYSTRA has worked on more than 60% of the light rail transit lines currently in use. The Bordeaux light rail transit system is the first in the world with no overhead power cables, and the transit systems in Brest and Casablanca were voted the two best light rail transit projects in the world by the British Light Rail Transit Association in 2012.

SYSTRA provides preliminary studies and engineering, owner assistance, project management and supervision services for tramway and tram-train projects.
