The city of Montpellier is located about 10 kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea between Marseille and the Spanish border. It has a new tram network since the year 2000, after the first one was abandoned in 1949. In the meantime, four trams lines in Montpellier serve a route length of approx. 60 kilometers. One specialty is the line-related design of the cars, this means that each line has its own vehicle design. Each car can only be used on "its" line.
The tram network is operated by → TAM ( Transports de l'agglomération de Montpellier).
