The Dijon tramway (French: Tramway de Dijon) is a tramway system opened in Dijon, France, in September 2012. The tramway consists of two lines totaling 20 kilometres (12.4 mi) in length and serving 37 stations.

Line T1, was the first one to be opened,[1] is 8.5-kilometre (5.3 mi) long and has 16 stations running from the Dijon railway station to Quetigny. Two months after opening line T1 carried an average of 36 000 passengers a day during its first two months in service, 6,000 more than the highest forecasts.

Line T2 opened in December 2012. It is a line with 21 stations running between Valmy and Chenôve.[2] Dijon has ordered 32 Alstom trams to provide the service.[3]

The tramway has been built under a 176 million Public–private partnership contract between the Grand Dijon urban authority and Inéo.[2]
