Bombardier Delivers 200th FLEXITY Tram to Berlin

Bombardier Transportation has delivered its 200th FLEXITY tram to Berlin’s public transport authority Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), which operates the third-largest tram system in the world and the largest in Germany.

Bombardier is still to deliver a further 31 low-floor Flexity trams to the city.

Michael Fohrer, Head of Bombardier Transportation Germany, said:

“For 30 years we’ve had a very good partnership with BVG, which has reached another joint milestone with today's delivery of the 200th FLEXITY tram. Since 2008, our modern and innovative FLEXITY trams have been running on Berlin's rails and we’re proud to make a meaningful contribution towards more sustainable transport in the booming German capital.”

Each tram is fully accessible to passengers with reduced mobility. For passenger comfort they are air-conditioned.
