Ligne du Tramway République
The linking the Caillols district in the East of the town to the Joliette business district, passing through la Canebière, was inaugurated in the presence of the President of the Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, on 3 July 2007.
The arrival of the tramway aims to relieve congestion in the town centre, asphyxiated by cars, and to “commercially irrigate” the rue de la République.
Three tramway stations running to and from rue de la République : Sadi Carnot, Dames and Joliette.
