The TEOR (Transport Est-Ouest Rouennais) is a bus rapid transit system operating in the city of Rouen, Normandy, France. The service was inaugurated on February, 2001. TEOR was the second BRT system implemented in France (after Évry).

All three TEOR lines operate on separate bus lanes. It allows for a much faster and efficient public transportation network. TEOR vehicles are able to travel rapidly without encountering traffic problems.

The system is operated by TCAR (Transports en Commun de l'Agglomération Rouennaise), a subsidiary of Transdev.

Vehicles[edit]

The TEOR runs a fleet of 28 articulated Irisbus Citelis 18 manufactured by Irisbus, each with a seating capacity of 43 and able to accommodate 67 more standing. The vehicles run on a diesel motor system that produce less emissions than regular buses (euro 3).
