Île-de-France tramway Line 2 (usually called simply T2) is part of the modern tram network of the Île-de-France region of France. Line T2 connects Paris-Porte de Versailles and Pont de Bezons serving notably the La Défense business district on its way; the line has a length of 17.9 km (11.1 mi) and 24 stations. The initial section between La Défense and Issy–Val de Seine station opened in July 1997 uses a former heavy rail line converted into light rail whereas the further extensions on both ends opened in November 2009 and November 2012 feature segregated on-street running.

Line T2 is operated by the Régie autonome des transports parisiens (RATP) under the authority of Île-de-France Mobilités.

Because of the success of this line (115,000 people use it daily[1]) the trams were doubled in length in 2005, raising the capacity of each tram to 440 passengers.
