The “Amalway Agadir Trambus” project is the result of a decentralized partnership agreement between the municipality of Agadir and the municipality of Nantes. “This project has two components: one relating to urban qualification which required an amount of 300 million dirhams (MDH) and the second linked to the purchase of BRTs for a budget of 900 MDH”, said Mohamed. Bakiri, first vice-president of the urban municipality of Agadir, in charge of the environment and the technical proximity service.
The “Amalway Trambus”, which will be operational shortly, will improve the living conditions of the inhabitants of Greater Agadir and also promote sustainable mobility. 15.5 km long, this line runs throughout the city on a north-south-east axis connecting the port of Agadir to the Tikiouine districts and serving the administrative center, avenue Hassan Il, Souk El Had, Avenue Hassan 1ᵉʳ, the university hub, the Cité Al Houda, the Tassila industrial zone and the center of Tikiouine.
With this project, around 30 new buses with international standards will be operational and will pass through 35 stations, said Mr. Bakiri, specifying that the buses will carry 60,000 passengers per day, within a perimeter of 500 meters around the line.
The realization of “Amalway Agadir Trambus” will be followed by a redevelopment of the entire public transport network, the creation of exchange poles to optimize the correspondence between the various modes of transport and services to make the waiting time profitable. and make it more secure and comfortable.
In addition to the transport project, the improvements that will be carried out from facade to facade on the axes crossed by “Amalway Agadir Trambus” will make it possible to requalify the public spaces and the roads along the project and to secure the movement of pedestrians and cycles.
