Mr. Soucaret brought the authorizations for occupation of the private domain of Touquet-Paris-Plage (Touquet-Syndicate-Limited and Société Générale du Touquet-Paris-Plage) for the establishment of the railways. M. de Turckheim brought the necessary authorizations for the circulation of vehicles. Mr. Albert Henry brought the studies of the railways.

This tram network was put into service in 1910 and will run for 4 km. A loop served the busiest places in the city from the Casino de la Plage to the Sports and Golf districts, taking Boulevard de la Mer, Rue de Paris and Rue de Bruxelles. An antenna was grafted on this loop at the height of the Hermitage by traversing the avenue de l'Hippodrome.

The service continued until the First World War. Interrupted during the conflict, the circulation of the tramway resumed at the end of it and ceased definitively in 1925.
