Inaugurated yesterday, on 29 April 2023, after a total of four years of construction, the latest extension of Line A of Bordeaux’s tramway now provides a long-awaited direct rail link between Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport and the city centre.
The approximately 5-kilometre line branches off the existing Line A route at Quatre-Chemins stop and reaches Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport via four intermediate stations called Mérignac Soleil, Chemin long, Cadéra Issartier and Caroline Aigle. The new section is single-track with passing loops. Total investment cost is 95 million euros.
The new tram terminus is located at the foot of the terminal in front of the Express car park near Hall B. Passengers travelling by tram A can reach Bordeaux city centre, Place Pey Berland, in just 35 minutes, and this every 10 minutes on a working day. The price of a single one-way ticket is 1.70 euros, the 10-ticket costs 13.70 euros.30.04.2023
