The B line of the Bordeaux tramway is operated by Transports Bordeaux Métropole, and connects Station Pessac Centre in Pessac to Claveau in north Bordeaux.

Equipment[edit]

Line B of the tramway uses Citadis 300 cars from Alstom; these type 402 cars are 44 meters long and offer 300 seats. These air conditioned cars operate both with overhead power lines and ground-level power supply (APS).

APS is used for part of line B, notably in the center of Bordeaux and when crossing Talence; the change between APS and overhead lines takes place at the station, Peixotto, at the entrance to the university area.

The line includes two swing bridges at Bassins à flot, including this one on Quai de Bacalan.
