Bombardier’s FLEXITY Tram Authorized for the Düsseldorf Network

GERMANY: Global mobility solution provider Bombardier Transportation has received authorization for its FLEXITY trams to commence operation in the Düsseldorf and Duisburg network, paving the way for Rheinbahn AG to start using the trams for passenger service within the Düsseldorf metropolitan area in Germany.

Bombardier Transportation, the first manufacturer in the rail industry to combine 100 per cent low-floor technology with conventional wheel-set bogies, will deliver a total of 59 newly developed FLEXITY high-floor trams to Rheinbahn in Düsseldorf.

“We are delighted to have reached this important commissioning milestone. This will support our efforts to condense tram traffic cycles in Düsseldorf, planned for this year. With the new HF6 vehicles for the Rheinbahn, we are offering our passengers more services and more comfort. We are working closely with our supplier Bombardier Transportation to ensure that the other 56 vehicles are also authorized for passenger service as quickly as possible,” said Michael Richarz, Member of the Board of Management for Technology and Operations at Rheinbahn AG.
