Inauguration of the new T7 tramway line and Cœur d’Orly station
The commissioning of the T7 tramway is accompanied by a plan to amend and improve nearby bus routes, which will come into effect on Sunday 17 November. The plan affects 19 bus routes (including five night buses) and aims to optimise the complementarity of bus and tram services.
The T7 is 11.2 km long and has 18 stations, serving the towns of Villejuif, L’Haÿ-les-Roses, Vitry-sur-Seine, Chevilly-Larue, Thiais, Rungis, Paray Vieille-Poste, Orly, Villeneuve-le-Roi and Athis-Mons. It links to several existing or planned lines, namely the RER C, metro line 7, TVM, Orlyval, the future extension of line 14 to Orly and the future lines 15 and 18 of the Grand Paris Express.
With one tram running every six minutes during the rush hour, and then every four minutes following the extension to the Juvisy-sur-Orge RER station in 2018, the T7 is set to carry almost 30,000 passengers a day in the long term. It is accessible to all thanks to its 19 Citadis 302 step-free trams and specially designed platforms, making it easy for people with reduced mobility to travel safely.
