CZECH REPUBLIC: Tram operator DP Ostrava has published an artist’s impression of the trams that it has ordered from Škoda Transportation. Styled by Tomáš Chludil, the trams are based on Škoda’s ForCity Smart design.
Last year DP Ostrava selected Škoda to supply 40 trams for KC1·9bn. The two-section low-floor trams will be 26·5 m long with capacity for 200 passengers. They will be equipped with air-conditioning, CCTV, wi-fi and USB sockets. Deliveries are due to begin in September 2020.
