The Transports en Commun de l'Agglomération Rouennaise (TCAR) (Rouen public transport in French) (usually referred to as TCAR) is the Rouen public transport agency. TCAR is a subsidiary of Veolia Transport and covers 45 communes of the CREA.
In 1991, construction of a new tramway system began. This new tramway operates on one line with two southern branches to Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray and Le Grand-Quevilly. The network runs for 1.7 km underground in the city centre and the remainder on the road surface and reserved track. Rolling stock is of light rail type; the Tramway Français Standard (TFS).
Métrobus was opened on 17 December 1994. In light of the fact that the new mode of transport technically is a light railway/tramway, inhabitants of Rouen and its suburbs have taken the habit of calling it the 'métro'. In 1997, the tramway was extended to the technopôle du Madrillet.
