Zoom on the most popular idea : The debate about train-tram Better interconnexion between regional trains and tram Opportunity to create a « tram ring » Re-use of old railway line ? BRT ? >> Quality of the debate, contributions, comments with links to article, other contributions on Carticipe >> Cartographic social network
