The B line of the Bordeaux tramway is operated by the Tram et Bus de la CUB, and connects Station Pessac Centre in Pessac to Claveau in north Bordeaux.

Equipment[edit]

Line B of the tramway uses Citadis 300 cars from Alstom. These type 402 cars are 44 meters long and offer 300 seats. These air conditioned cars operate both with overhead power lines and ground-level power supply (APS).

APS is used for part of line B, notably in the center of Bordeaux and when crossing Talence. The change between APS and overhead lines takes place at the station, Peixotto, at the entrance to the university area.

The line includes two swing bridges at Bassins à flot, including this one on Quai de Bacalan.
