FLEXITY 2 – Blackpool, United Kingdom

The City of Blackpool is the launch customer of the BOMBARDIER FLEXITY 2 tram. In delivering these 16 trams, Bombardier Transportation is contributing to the revitalization of Britain’s most traditional tram system, enhancing the city’s attractiveness while reducing energy consumption.

Based on the highly successful FLEXITY platform with a strong reputation for performance and reliability, the FLEXITY 2 tram combines proven features and innovation in a single vehicle. It sets the highest standards in the areas of comfort, safety and environmental protection.

Blackpool’s FLEXITY 2 trams are 32.2 m long and 2.65 m wide, with five sections and three bogies. The vehicle is capable of carrying about 74 seated passengers, with additional wheelchair and pushchair space plus standing room.

Their technical advantages include an improved carbody concept, with better corrosion protection and an enhanced bogie design, the FLEXX Urban 3000. The overall vehicle mass is reduced and the MITRAC propulsion technology will result in significantly lower energy consumption

The Blackpool & Fleetwood Tramway today carries nearly three million passengers a year, about 75% of them tourists.
