Line 2 services start at Bellevue station in the northeast of the city, traversing a new 3.4km €90m line to a junction with Line 1 at Préfecture. Line 2 trams continue through the city centre on Line 1 tracks as far as St Martin, where they diverge onto the branch to Espal, which previously operated as part of Line 1.
The first 15.4km phase of the network linking Université in the north with Espal in the east and Antarés in the south opened in 2007. A 13-station Line 3 is also planned which would run from a junction with lines 1 and 2 at the city's main station to the southwestern district of Allonnes.
Alstom supplied eight additional 30m-long Citadis LRVs for Line 2, taking Le Mans' total fleet of these vehicles to 34. The city's light rail operator Setram has recently upgraded its existing 26 vehicles to meet the latest regulations on passengers with reduced mobility.
