Bergen Bybanen

NORWAY: Hordaland County Council has exercised an €27m option for Stadler Pankow to supply a further six Variobahn trams for the Bergen Bybanen tramway, taking the total fleet to 34.

The additional trams are scheduled to be delivered from the end of 2021, ahead of the opening of the Phase 4 extension to Fyllingsdalen in 2022.

The seven-sections bidirectional vehicles will be 42 m long with five doors per side, fully low-floor and step-free access and a capacity of more than 280 passengers.

‘We are looking forward to offer our commuters and travellers even more of the comfortable vehicles from Stadler’, said Ingrid Holm Svendsen, Chief Executive of Hordaland County Council, on September 16.
