The first line of the Nice Tramway opened for service November 2007. It has relieved traffic congestion and allowed for a cleaner and more environmentally-friendly city; further tramlines are being planned.
Ligne 1 (line 1) - a "U-shaped" route - runs from Comte de Falican (Nice Nord), south to the city centre and coast and back north to Pont Michel, a total of 8.7 Km with 21 stations. (At a later date this line will be extended by a further 4.5 Km to the Quartier La Trinité.) Stops include: Stade du Ray, Gare Thiers, Jean Médecin, Place Masséna, Jaun Jaurès, Place Garibaldi, Nice Acropolis, Université and St-Roch.
Announcements are made at stations to advise of the arrival of a tram, and at each stop specifying the name of the stop.
The tram runs Monday to Sunday, 21 hours per day. The first departure from Las Planas is at 04:25 and from Pont Michel at 05:10. The last departure from Las Planas is at 00:50 and from Pont Michel at 01:35.
There are 21 stations, with one stop approximately every 450 meters.
New Parcs Relais car parks have been created with one at the Comte de Falican terminus (800 spaces) and one at the Pont Michel terminus (500 spaces). These two car parks are free of charge as the price of the parking is included in the tram ticket.
Many of the existing car parks around the centre of Nice are currently undergoing work to increase the number of spaces available. Their prices are not included in the price of the tram ticket.
The tramway cars are accessible to people with reduced mobility (wheel chair users, pushchairs) and for people who suffer from visual and hearing impairments.
