FLEXITY Classic – Frankfurt, Germany

Bombardier Transportation developed a low-floor tram for the Frankfurt transport authorities (VGF), based on the proven FLEXITY Classic design which was first introduced and has since been in successful revenue service in Kassel. The conventional powered bogies offer increased running stability and reduced wear of wheel and rail. Therefore, the costs for service and maintenance are considerably reduced. For an unruffled and quiet ride, the tram is equipped with optimised suspension. Wide doors and low entrances allow quick and effortless passenger transfer.

With a capacity for 179 passengers, this vehicle is the ideal solution for Frankfurt am Main. A total of 75 FLEXITY Classic trams have been ordered by VGF which have been in successful operation since October 2003.
