Future[edit]

The TER Alsace continues its development. Some old lines will be opened again, and new trains have been ordered (Alstom Régiolis) and will be delivered in 2013-2014.

At the same time, the region is currently putting in place Alséo, a magnetic card allowing access to the urban transport networks of Strasbourg, Colmar and Mulhouse, but also the TER network.

Tram-train[edit]

The Thur valley tram-train, between Mulhouse and Thann, began operation in December 2010 with Siemens Avanto rolling stock.[1]

A tram-train between Strasbourg, Molsheim and Barr has also been proposed but won't be realized before 2018[2]
