GERMANY: The first passengers rode an Urbos 100 tram in Freiburg on July 16 in a special event held ahead of the trams’ entry into regular passenger service on July 27.
Public transport operator VAG signed a contract with CAF in March 2013 for 12 seven-section 100% low-floor trams for its metre-gauge network. The first was delivered on the night of March 16-17, with five more delivered since then. The remaining six are to be delivered in 2017.
The bidirectional air-conditioned trams are 42 m long with capacity for 241 passengers. There are 66 fixed seats and six folding seats in two wheelchair spaces. Entry is through five 1 300 mm wide double doors and a single door on each side. The trams also feature passenger information screens, two ticket vending machines and external cameras instead of side mirrors.
