This was the only articulated bus I saw in Marseille, at the time on a test run. The last time articulated buses ran on the streets of Marseille was in 1995. These are being introduced onto high volume routes.

The Marseille Citaro articulate bus got the same livery as Dijon Citadis trams that are running on Dijon 18km 2 line tram system that opened last year.

Far out, the new Citaros are such good looking vehicles. Very fierce.
Great photos, Zack.

Thanks,

It's a different type to the new C2 G, but is the same new chassis/body concept. It's a high capacity "BRT" type bus with 4 doors. The entire Citaro series is quite good although I much prefer the newer designs these days.
