Approximately 6 kilometres of BRT line, including 4 in the town centre.
Creation of a multimodal hub at the rail station.
Creation of a transit hub.
Development of roadways and public spaces.
Interface, transit infrastructures and development of public spaces.

The Optymo 2 project is based on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) concept and constitutes the second phase in construction of the "Optymo" public-transportation network in the city of Belfort. The main purpose of this type of public transportation system is to affirm the presence of BUSES in the city by making the stops more legible (stopping POINTS), by encouraging and organising intermodality via the creation of hubs in strategic urban locations such as the rail station, the Place Rabin and the Place de la Liberté and finally by making BUS and vehicle traffic plans coherent in order to optimise traffic for both.
