The tramway network consists of 7 lines, each identified by a number and a color. Trams are an excellent and efficient service that allows you to move around the city. The runs are quite frequent, and the service is guaranteed every day, including holidays, shortly after midnight. Here are the seven lines:
- Tram A: Parc des Sports - Homme de Fer - Illkirch Graffenstaden.
- Tram B: Hoenheim Gare - Homme de Fer - Lingolsheim Alouettes.

- Tram E: Robertsau Boecklin - République - Campus d'Illkirch.
- Tram F: Elsau - Homme de Fer - Place d'Islande.
- Ligne G: Espace Européen de l'Entreprise - Central Gare.
Trams run from Monday to Saturday, from 04: 30 to 00: 30; Sundays and holidays, from 05: 30 to 00: 30.
The frequency is 5 / 6 minutes from 06: 30 to 20: 00, and 15 minutes from 04: 30 to 06: 30 and after 20: 00.
Thirty lines active until late at night, and three at night, representing the excellent road-going offer to move around Strasbourg. Thanks to the numerous and frequent buses, you can also reach the most outlying areas of the city.
Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday (including holidays) there is a night service called Hibus. You can take advantage of three lines, active from 23: 30 to 05: 30, with runs every hour from Place Corbeau. You travel with the normal ticket or CTS subscription. Hibus stops in the streets and in the busiest areas of the city.
Given that the center of Strasbourg can easily be walked on foot, there are different types of tickets suitable for all needs.
ALLER SIMPLE it is the simple ticket with which you can make a trip on bus or tram; costs 1,70 € through CTS APP. On the bus, it costs 2.00 €. You can buy the carnet from 10 tickets at the special price of 14.10 € (instead of 17,00 €), valid for one person only.
Under 12 and over 65, they can buy the carnet ALLER SIMPLE tarif réduit: 10 tickets at the cost of 10.30 €.
24H ONLY is a day ticket, valid for 24h. Allows unlimited travel on all buses, trams, coaches lines and TER trains of Strasbourg, on the D-line with destination Kehl; costs 4.50 € and is ideal if you want to make more trips.
If you are traveling as a couple or three, you will find even cheaper 24H TRIO. It costs 6.90 € and allows three people to travel unlimited on buses and trams within 24 hours.
In the city, considerable importance is given to the environmental impact. To this end, and in the attempt (moreover successful) to limit traffic, several parking areas have been created, in correspondence with numerous tram or bus stops. And, always, to encourage the use of public transport, you can buy the TICKET P + R at the cost of 4,10 €. This is a special ticket with which a maximum of 7 people (!) Can leave a car in the parking lot for the whole day and make a round trip. In other words, with this ticket, an entire family, paying in total 4,10 €, leaves the car for the whole day and can go and return from the center. Really convenient to get around Strasbourg. By the way, the parking lots are always open 24 hours on 24!
