|Besancon VLR/ULR||In 2014, a new low-floor Ultra Light Tramway system started its operations in France – in the city of Besançon. It differs from other new systems in the country, mainly because of its lower cost approach: the usually very complex design of the infrastructure as well as the redesign of the street environment were kept simple by French standards. In addition, the procurement of low-cost vehicles was also part of this initiative. For the very first time, Spanish manufacturer CAF delivered 19 vehicles of its “Urbos” model to a French city, a 24 meter short version composed of three sections.||VLR/ULR|
