FLEXITY Berlin

Berlin, Germany FLEXITY Berlin The testing stage of the four pre-series vehicles generated a highly positive

The testing stage of the four pre-series vehicles generated a highly positive echo in the passenger surveys conducted on the new vehicle type of the Berlin tram. In 2009 the Berlin Transport Authority (BVG) ordered 99 series production vehicles of the BOMBARDIER* FLEXITY* Berlin type. At the end of June 2012 an order for another 39 vehicles was placed. This now includes 38 long uni-directional vehicles, 53 short and 47 long bi-directional vehicles.

The concept of the FLEXITY Berlin tram was developed together by BVG and Bombardier Transportation especially for the German capital. The result is a means of public transport in cities that are geared to the future, with stepless entrances and easy access for passengers with limited mobility. The interior is characterized by its generous passenger space, as well as multifunction compartments and air-conditioned passenger areas. The noise levels are lower than that of the trams used up until now. The vehicles have low electricity consumption and feed back electricity into the braking system.

The 2.4 metre wide trams offer an ideal utilization of space in the passenger compartment. Spacious multi-purpose areas provide ample room for prams, wheel-chairs or bicycles.

The cityscape of Berlin is characterized by the Bauhaus style, and so is this tram design which is not only marked by a clear line structure, but also reflects the corporate design of BVG and received the international “IF Product Design Award 2010” as well as the Universal Design and Consumer Favourite Award 2012.
