Low floor future

filed on: 14.03.2008 (14th Mar 2008)

Current VBZ plans see the following rolling stock deployment for 2011 (by which time Cobra deliveries should be complete):

  • Cobra on routes 2-4 and 9-14

  • Sänfte on route 6

  • Sänfte+Pony on route 7

  • Tram 2000 on routes 2-5, 7-9, 11 and 13-15

Routes 6, 10 and 12 will thus have low-floor trams on all services, 5, 8 and 15 will remain all high-floor and the other routes will have a mix of about 50% of each.

VBG Glattal Cobra tramThe first Cobra to be delivered in VBG (Glattal) livery will be 3062 (due to be delivered this autumn). VBG will take over the operation of route 10 from this December's timetable switch, coinciding with the route's extension to the airport. VBG will also operate route 12 (Airport to Stettbach) from its 2010 opening. VBZ will retain route 11.

Unmodified Cobra prototypes 3001-5 are currently out of service and stored in Wollishofen depot (probably to be replaced or rebuilt[?] to series specifications).
