According to the Moscow Department of Transport, next year the public transport fleet of the city will be expanded with 43 three-section trams.
The trams will be put into operation on four routes in the Northern Administrative District and the North-Western Administrative District of Moscow, namely routes 6, 15, 30 and 31.
The Department specified that the trams have the second highest capacity after the metro, being spacious, environmentally friendly and reliable. The new-generation trams have low floor, climate control system, USB and Type-C charging slots, bicycle, wheelchair and child baby carriage mounts.
«In addition to supplying trams, the manufacturer is also obliged to provide service support for 30 years, repair and maintenance of the trams. The new cars now operate on 87% of the routes. And in 2023, modern fully low-floor single-section and three-section cars will make up the absolute majority of trams in the city», Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport Maksim Liksuto said.
Earlier it was reported that this year Moscow has already received 71 trams, including 31 three-section Vityaz-Moskva and 40 single-section trams.
