Berlin Transport Authority gets 100th Flexity tram

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation said it has handed over the 100th Flexity tram for Berlin to the Berlin Transport Authority (BVG).

In the presence of numerous representatives from politics, business and the media, the keys were symbolically handed over by the President and Chief Operating Officer of Bombardier Transportation Dr. Lutz Bertling to the BVG Chairwoman of the Board Dr. Sigrid Evelyn Nikutta at Berlin´s Nordbahnhoff station.

In 2008, Flexity Berlin began with four pre-series vehicles that were tested intensively. The trams were specially designed for the German capital, with inspiration from the Bauhaus style, a design that has already received numerous design awards.

Bombardier Transportation is an international market leader in rail technology and has the most diverse product portfolio in the sector.
