In December, the Swiss town of Basel opened a new tram track to Saint Louis in the French part of its agglomeration. Two years ago, Basel had already connected its tram network to the adjacent German town of Weil am Rhein. It is unique that an urban tram network covers three countries.
Basel’s agglomeration covers Switzerland, France and Germany, and hence, urban mobility planning should connect the three. Therefore, the opening of tram 3 to Saint Louis is an important part of agglomeration’s mobility strategy.
