The trams will be built at Stadler’s Bussnang, Switzerland plant, with the first going into service in December 2023. Additional vehicles will follow in 2024 and 2025.

BLT will be the first Swiss rail operator to use Stadler’s next-generation TINA trams, which have a focus on passenger comfort.

The fully air-conditioned vehicles offer an integrated passenger information system and improved accessibility thanks to low floors, and the trams will be supplied with an integrated collision warning system like that used on the Waldenburg railway.

In addition, the trams will be pre-equipped to enable installation of sliding steps on all double doors.
