Five suppliers vie for tram contract

filed on: 08.04.2013 (8th Apr 2013)

BLT Tango tram and VBZ Cobra Bahnhofstrasse Five suppliers have submitted bids to supply Züich's new trams (the deadline passed at the end of last week). Although the hopefuls are not named officially, the list must definitely include Siemens, Bombardier and Stadler. Alstom says it has not made an offer. My own guess is that the other two suppliers are CAF and one eastern European supplier (maybe PESA?).

The final order should be placed before Christmas, with the first of the new trams being in service befor the end of 2016.
