The German operator Bremer Straßenbahn AG (BSAG) has ordered a new tram fleet for the Free Hanseatic City. The order is for 67 Avenio trams and includes an option for up to 17 additional trams. The four-section trains are to be delivered step by step for service in Bremen’s tram network beginning in the spring of 2019.
“Modern, comfortable, reliable, durable and naturally barrier-free – that’s the new tram for everyone in Bremen,” said BSAG board spokesman Hajo Müller. “Today’s signing of the contract marks a milestone for mass transit in Bremen and the surrounding region. The Avenio is the ideal tram for Bremen’s community. With its spacious interior, wireless Internet access and information system with double monitors, it fulfills all the demands for comfort and quality that we and our riders expect of a modern tram.”
“Following Munich, Den Haag and Doha, Bremen is now the fourth city we are supplying with the Avenio. Our modular design ensures that the Avenio can be tailored to each city’s particular needs and can also be flexibly used in a demanding infrastructure,” said Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility Division.
