Jean-Luc Moudenc, the mayor of Toulouse, along with Jean-Michel Lattes and Philippe Perrin from Tisséo, unveiled the cabin of Toulouse’s future aerial tramway.
The cabin was be on display to the public, located next to the Capitole metro station, visitors were be able to preview the Symphony cabin to discover and try out its spacious and comfortable interior.
The Symphony model cabins will be able to accommodate a total of 34 people with 20 seats, spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility and even spaces for bikes. They will travel at a speed of 25 km/h and come to a complete stop at the station to make boarding and alighting as safe as possible. The symphony model is completely silent and will offer passengers a safe and comfortable travel experience, as well as a panoramic view of the city. The carrier will also be equipped with an anti-vertigo filter to ensure that even those most sensitive to heights can enjoy the ride.
The metallic blue POMA cabin boasts a simple and elegant design by Paolo Pininfarina, the famous Italian Ferrari designer. Like all of our cabin ranges, Symphony cabins are produced in France, at the Sigma subsidiary based in Veyrins-Thuellin near Grenoble, guaranteeing POMA know-how and expertise.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Three kilometres long, the Téléo line connects Paul Sabatier University and the Oncopole in just a 10-minute ride which crosses the Garonne river. The first 3S urban aerial tramway in France will provide a fast and reliable mode of transport at the heart of the public transport network in Toulouse.
Thanks to the future Téléo, the city of Toulouse is also offering residents an even cleaner, more sustainable mode of transport. With 8000 travellers expected each day, Toulouse's forthcoming aerial tramway will reduce ground traffic, therefore reducing Co2 emissions.
