A SFr125m contract for Stadler Rail to supply 14 four-car Flirt electric multiple-units for use on the RER Vaud network centred on Lausanne was signed by Swiss Federal Railways on March 24.
The EMUs are scheduled to be delivered by 2020. They will be 75 m long with 324 seats, and will have eight double-leaf doors per side to facilitate rapid boarding and alighting.
RER Vaud services are currently operated using 23 Flirt and 13 Domino EMUs. The new units will enable SBB to operate longer and more frequent services, to accommodate the increasing ridership resulting from the canton’s demographic and economic growth.
