A total of 50 BOMBARDIER FLEXITY Classic vehicles have been in operation in Krakow since 2000. In July 2010, MPK decided to sign a contract for another 24 vehicles bringing the fleet up to 74 trams.
The new vehicles are substantially longer than the ones which have been in service to date to accommodate the large passenger volumes travelling on Krakow trams.
The new FLEXITY Classic trams are 32 meters long, 2.4 meters wide and offer a capacity for 224 passengers. Five wide double-door and 2 single-door entrances ensure a rapid passenger flow, multi-purpose areas provide space for pushchairs and wheel-chair users. Air-conditioning in the passenger compartment, as well as a passenger information system provide high travel comfort. The fourth order in a row from MPK Krakow confirms the operator’s confidence in Bombardier as a supplier of proven urban transport solutions. Representatives of the FLEXITY Classic family are already in successful revenue service in cities such as Bremen, Dresden, Essen, Frankfurt/Main, Gdansk, Kassel and Leipzig.
