The supervisory board of Berlin city transport operator BVG approved a €3·1bn metro trainset and tram procurement programme running until 2035 at its meeting on October 31.
This decision enables BVG to call the first tenders under the fleet expansion and renewal programme, which could eventually cover 700 large-profile and 500 small-profile U-Bahn trainsets and 200 trams.
The first stage would see the acquisition of at least 182 small-profile and 264 large-profile U-Bahn cars, as well as at least 80 bi-directional trams of various lengths.
