CZECH REPUBLIC: Škoda Transportation has delivered the first of two ForCity Smart X34 (40T) trams ordered by Plzeň operator PMDP, and test running is planned to get underway in August.

In September 2018 Škoda Transportation was the sole bidder for a contract to supply trams to Plzeň, with a firm order for two and options for up to 20 more.

The design was unveiled in October 2019 and the first vehicles were scheduled to be ready in a year, but delivery has taken longer than expected.
