The first order for the supply of 30 trams, of which 20 for the urban service and 10 for the intercity service, has a total value of 75.5 million euros. The order is part of a 6-year framework agreement for the supply of 50 trams for urban and 30 trams for intercity services, which will progressively replace all older trams, thus increasing the public transport offer and improving travel comfort with technologically advanced, quieter and much more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles.

Milan, 30 new trolleybuses are coming

The order for the supply of 30 new trams marks another step in the ATM fleet renewal plan. The investment is part of the so called “ATM full electric” plan. A few weeks ago the first Solaris Trollino 18 trolleybus “landed” in Milan. It’s be the first delivery in the framework of a 80 trolleybuses agreement. The new vehicles will progressively replace all 12-metre and 18-metre older vehicles.

ATM Milano is saying goodbye to diesel buses

With regards to buses, from 2019 on, not a single diesel bus will be purchased by ATM Milano. Only hybrids, trolleybus IMC and full electric buses. In the meanwhile, all ATM’s depots will be converted and new structures will be built. So far there are 25 electric buses in circulation, following the tender won by Solaris with the Urbino electric in June 2017. The other contender, at that time, was Irizar. It was the first electric tender launched by ATM. The second tender, for up to 250 electric buses, also saw Solaris as a winner, as announced a few days ago.
