CAF supplies the trams for the new Mauritius Island tram system. This project includes the supply of 18 Urbos units, the signalling system, automatic vehicle location system (AVLS), transit signal priority system (TSPS), and the depot equipment including a driving simulator.

These new trams are 100% low floor and consist of 7 modules, thus offering the operator exceptional transit capacity. The units are designed to guarantee complete accessibility for all users. Accordingly, they have several areas restricted for use by persons with reduced mobility.

The line is 26 km long with a total of 19 stations and will connect the five major cities of Mauritius (Curepipe, Vacoas, Rose Hill, Quatre Bornes and the capital city, Port Louis).
