The Nancy Guided Light Transit or TVR is a guided bus system in Nancy, France

The tram on tires technology, TVR, which approximates what we would call today for top-level bus service, has become famous for having known a number of setbacks early in its history, because of an overly quick startup in 2000:

  • insufficient testing and debugging
  • problems of rolling stock reliability and ergonomics of the cockpit.

Finally, the final commissioning was delayed a year because of these disappointments.

The official rate since September 2006 is a tram every 5 minutes, but in fact the service is very irregular.
