The fleet of 26 vehicles is being assembled by Cital, a joint venture of Alstom, Algiers Metro Company (EMA), Ferrovial, and Algerian National Railways (SNTF), at its facility in Annaba.

Each 44m-long 2.6m-wide bidirectional vehicle will accommodate up to 302 passengers with 12 passenger doors on each side.

A joint venture of Alstom and Turkish construction company Yapi Merkezi was awarded a contract in 2014 to build and equip the 15.2km line from El Bez University to Eastern Maintenance Centre, which will have 27 stations and a commercial speed of 20.3km/h, with peak capacity of 6000 passengers per direction per hour.
