Public Transport / France / Valenciennes
The city of Valenciennes is located in northern France, close to the Belgian border. It has only about 45,000 inhabitants, but together with the neighbouring municipalities it has a population of over 350,000. The tramway network was opened in 2006 as a successor to the first tram, which was abandoned in 1966. Two lines arranged in a Y-shape, which lead far into the surrounding area, operate on a route length of almost 34 kilometres.
