The 4.1km line will link the current terminus of Line T1 at Alamanni-Stazione with Careggi Hospital in the north of the city, with a journey time of around 20 minutes.

The 32m-long bi-directional vehicle is due to make its first test run on Line T3 on February 12, when it will operate on the Careggi - Piazza Dalmazia section.

Construction began on Line T3 in May 2014 and commercial operations are expected to start in the summer.
