Gera orders Stadler trams
Posted on 18th December 2023 at 10:51
In early December, the municipal transport operator GVB in the German city of Gera signed a contract with Stadler for the delivery of six 43m 100% low-floor TINA trams for delivery in 2026; there is an option for a further three trams.
The 270-passenger cars (101 seated) will cost EUR 38M, with EUR 17.07M coming from the state of Thuringia and a similar amount from the European Regional Development Fund. The city council will add its support of EUR 7.2M.
Mayor Julian Vonarb said, ‘The fact that mobility is a central topic of our time can also be seen in the requirements that are placed on it: mobility offers should be flexible, modern , barrier-free and sustainable in order to be perceived as attractive options by users. With the six new trams Gera is once again taking an important step forward, Because it not only modernises the GVB fleet, but also sets an important course for the future of public transport in our city’.
Gera (population 93 000) has operated metre-gauge electric trams since 1892 and today the network has reached 18.5km. The new trams will replace some of the 22 Tatra KT4D high-floor cars. There are also six similar trams with a low-floor centre section and 12 low-floor NGT8G built by Alstom in 2006.
Stadler TINA trams for Gera will be similar to those delivered to Darmstadt in 2022-23. (Stadler)
