- Capacity of Toulouse metro Line A doubled by increasing train lengths from 26 to 52 meters
- Siemens and Tisséo worked through 1,000 nights to complete project on time without interrupting service
- World premiere for a fully automated VAL metro
Tisséo Collectivités, the transport network of Toulouse, inaugurated the new “XXL” Line A in its metro system.
