Gudrun Senk, Managing Director of Wiener Linien for the Technical Division, Construction and Facilities Management said:

“Wiener Linien is constantly renewing its vehicle fleet with a special focus on energy efficiency and accessibility. The Flexity Vienna will replace the last high-floor tram models in the coming years and thus make the public transport system barrier-free. It is already in use on five lines, and two more will be added in the course of the year with lines 46 and 49.”
