2014, the next year of the tram

After extending lines T1, T2 and T3 in 2012, and opening lines T5 and T7 in 2013, RATP is making 2014 the latest year of the tram by opening two new lines: T6 and T8. Its tram network will then be 95km long.

T6: from Châtillon to Viroflay - opening planned in two stages
