The Algiers Tramway (Arabic: ترامواي الجزائر العاصمة‎, Tramwāy al-Jazā'ir al-`Āṣimah, "Algiers Capital Tramway") is a tram system which commenced service on May 8, 2011 on part of the yet to be fully completed line in the Algerian capital, Algiers.[1] By June 2012, the opened sections had a length of 16.2 kilometres (10.1 mi) and 28 stops and were operated by ETUSA, the public transport operator for the Algiers metropolitan area, using Alstom Citadis trams. An extension, to take the tramway to a total length of 23.2 kilometres (14.4 mi), is currently (2013) under construction.[needs update]

The tramway is designed to carry between 150,000 and 185,000 people per day. The system offers a carrying capacity of 6,800 passengers per hour in each direction with a capacity of 400 persons per tram. The light rail vehicles (LRVs) being used are Alstom Citadis trams, specifically the second-generation Type 302. EMA has ordered 41 trams. The first set was delivered on March 28, 2009.[2]

The design of the trams was carried out by the agency RCP Design Global which covered the general concept, indoor environment and the outer casing of the trams. The livery of trams is blue and white.[3][4]
