  In view of France's status as the former supra of Morocco, the trams in Rabat naturally adopt the technical system and standards of France, and alstom, who "represents the highest zheng (zheng) fu (guan) quality (xi) of French rail transit", was granted the order.At the same time, in the field of trams, Morocco has also implemented the advantages of being a late starter: full low floor, large marshalling, large capacity, reconnection operation, and advanced technologies and concepts such as semi-exclusive right of way and signal priority.From the beginning of its design and construction, Rabat's trams set high standards, comparable to those of some European countries.
