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.
Each vehicle also has a GPS locator on board, which allows traffic signals to give the TEOR buses priority at busy intersections, keeping them moving as much as possible. Four doors on each side of the vehicle allow fast and easy boarding and exiting.
Irisbus Citelis 18
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).
TEOR stations are easily accessible for all users, including those with reduced mobility.
