A fleet of 59 high-floor trams is being delivered to Rheinbahn. Board member Michael Richarz said: “We are delighted to have reached this important commissioning milestone. This will support our efforts to condense tram traffic cycles in Düsseldorf, planned for this year.

“With the new HF6 vehicles for the Rheinbahn, we are offering our passengers more services and more comfort.

“We are working closely with our supplier Bombardier Transportation to ensure that the other 56 vehicles are also authorized for passenger service as quickly as possible.”

Michael Fohrer, head of Bombardier Transportation in Germany, responded: “We can look back on a long-lasting and incredible constructive partnership with Rheinbahn.

“I am very proud that our teams have worked hard and cooperated to ensure we achieved this important milestone.

“I am happy that these modern and energy efficient Flexity high-floor trams can now commence passenger service.”
