Oran tramway in Algeria inaugurated on 1 May

The Oran tramway, which is operated by RATP Group,  was officially inaugurated on 1 May 2013 by the Algerian Transport Minister Amar Tou in the presence of Mr Abdelmalek Boudiaf, the Wali of Oran. Also present at the inauguration was  Pierre Mongin, RATP Group Chairman and Chief Executive. Setram, a joint venture owned by RATP Dev (a subsidiary of RATP Group), Entreprise du Métro d'Alger (EMA) and Etablissement Public de Transport Urbain et Suburbain d'Alger (ETUSA) Line will provide operation and maintenance for ten years . The service on the Oran tramway will commence today,  2 May.

The Oran tramway is 18.7 km long and features 32 stops located in the largest boroughs of the greater Oran region. The service is scheduled to service about  90,000 passengers per day. It operates every day from 5 a.m. till 11 p.m. and boasts the latest technological innovations to guarantee passenger comfort, safety and access. Trams feature air conditioning, video projectors and low flooring to facilitate access for disabled passengers.

Since November 2012 Setram has also been in charge of the entire preparatory phase prior to entry into service. 650 employees have been hired and have been trained locally by RATP Group experts in operating and maintaining the Oran tramway.

Setram is making full use of RATP Group's expertise and has also developed operating procedures, devised a maintenance policy and completed the technical and dry run trials.

“RATP Group, which already operates the metro and tramway service in Algiers, is delighted to participate alongside its Algerian partners in the development of a new, high-quality, public transport network in Algeria”, Pierre Mongin stated. “With this achievement the group strengthens its position as a world leader in tramway services and is deploying all its abilities in this very important project for the people of Oran.”

RATP Group will continue to develop operations in the country through Setram. Setram  already operates the East tramway line in Algiers and will run the tramway in Constantine that is scheduled to enter service this summer. Other tramway projects in Algeria such as Sidi Bel Abbès, Ouargla and Mostaganem, for which work should soon commence are also under way. Setram is working with  authorities to provide all the help required to complete these projects.
