The total cost of the project, with a complete rethinking of the public transport of the urban area, is estimated at approximately €168mn (20bn XPF).


The future route which will link  Baie-de-la-Moselle to Médipôle will include 23 stations spread over 13.3km. It will serve the town-centre of Nouméa,  Vallée-du-Tir, Montravel, Rivière-Salée, the urban centre of Koutio, Koutio Secal, Les Erudits and Médipôle.


Following the loan designed for Médipôle, this loan dedicated to Néobus is the second most significant that Caisse des Dépôts has granted in New Caledonia.
