The city of Nice had a metre-gauge tram network since 1879, which was abandoned in 1953. In the year 2007, the tram was re-opened. In contrast to the first tram network, the new one was carried out with standard-gauge tracks. At present, one line is in operation (about 9 km long), a second one is under construction.
The tram is operated by "Société des Transports de Nice" (ST2N) under the brand Name → Lignes d'Azur
