Western extension of the T1, from Colombes to Gabriel Péri
The western extension of tramway T1 is designed primarily to serve Asnières, Bois-Colombes and Colombes, as far as tramway T2.

By connecting with tramway T2, the T1 extension project aims to facilitate peripheral travel in the Hauts-de-Seine département. It will reinforce the area’s public transport grid.

The project’s main objectives are to improve access to employment basins and local facilities, and to enhance mobility flows between communes.
