During the InnoTrans 2016 railway fair in Berlin, Stadler Rail showed a Variobahn lightrail for the completely new Aarhus Letbane network in Denmark. Stadler Rail is delivering twelve Tango sets and fourteen VarioBahn vehicles. They will have to enter revenue earning services in 2017.
They will be operated on a twelve-kilometer line from Nørreport to Lisbjerg-Lystrup passing through the university campus in Skejby. On both end points of the line, it will be connected to the Banedanmark-tram network.
The Variobahn features a low floor (385 mm above rail surface) over its entire length. A set is over 32 meters long and has a capacity of 224 passengers.
