LATVIA: PK TS has delivered the first of eight trams that it is supplying to Daugavpils transport operator Daugavpils Satiksme. The City Star vehicle travelled by road from the manufacturer’s factory in St Petersburg.
Daugavpils Satiksme signed a €4·1m contract in November with Lithuanian company UAB Railvec, which is partnering with PK TS. Almost 80% of the purchase is covered by EU funds, with the remainder coming from the city budget.
The 100% low-floor single-section trams have a capacity of 119 passengers including 33 seated.
