Mobility technology leader Bombardier Transportation has received an order to supply 30 additional BOMBARDIER FLEXITY trams to the Brussels Intercommunal Transportation Company (STIB) in Belgium. This second call off order is part of a framework contract for up to 175 trams with an initial call off of 60 trams signed in April 2018. The order is valued at approximately 67 million euro ($75 million US). First deliveries of the 30 additional five-car, 32-meter trams are planned from December 2020.
Like the 60 trams STIB previously ordered, the new FLEXITY trams will feature a bright and spacious interior with comfortable seats, more capacity and additional space for passengers with limited mobility as well as better inside fluidity at peak hours. A high-contrast, LCD information display system will keep passengers informed while an intelligent climate system with smart sensors will maintain the trams’ internal temperature. BOMBARDIER FLEXX bogies will offer a smooth ride.
