New trams for Basel
filed on: 30.06.2005 (30th Jun 2005)
BVB and BLT are jointly inviting tenders for 55 new trams. These will be 45m long, 2.3m wide, at least 60% low floor and able to transport 270 passengers. Tenders must be entered by 30th September. To prevent a repetition of the Combino problems, the manufacturer will supply four prototypes which must undergo a thorough test phase. Measurement points will verify that simulated values conform with reality. The production units will then follow in three batches until 2014. 15 units are for BVB and the remaining 40 for BLT.
