EGYPT: The first of 15 high-floor trams that Tatra-Yug is supplying to Alexandria Passenger Transportation Authority began test running on February 10, having arrived in Alexandria four days earlier.
The tram is expected to enter revenue service on the 32 route-km standard gauge network in late February. It is stabled at the Moharem Bey depot.
The Ukrainian factory signed the contract in February 2017 and rolled out the first tram from its Dnipro factory in mid-2018. All 15 trams are to be delivered this year.
The air-conditioned two-section tram is 22 m long. It is equipped with a pantograph and a trolley pole so that it can operate on sections not compatible with a pantograph.
