The fully accessible trams will operate on the new tram line between Lausanne and Renens in Switzerland.

The high-capacity, low-floor multi-articulated trams are characterised by a real axle bogie that guarantees a quiet and comfortable ride and maximum seating capacity over the bogies.

The trams’ light, high-strength stainless steel structure meets high structural requirements without compromising on weight and provides the best possible protection for passengers and drivers, while optimum driver visibility and front design ensures maximum safety in busy urban environments.

Each Lausanne tram is approximately 45 metres long and 2.65 metres wide and can carry a maximum of 316 people. Eight double-leaf doors per side, each with sliding steps, ensure the fast flow of passengers.

Internally, the acoustic and thermal insulation of the new trams and their air-conditioning systems improve passenger comfort.

Ansgar Brockmeyer, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing and Deputy Group CEO at Stadler, said:

“We’re very proud that Lausanne, strongly committed to green and sustainable mobility, has chosen our innovative TRAMLINK for its first tramway line.

“Passengers and drivers will enjoy a safe and comfortable ride and residents will appreciate the lack of noise.

“TRAMLINKs are fully accessible vehicles particularly attractive for urban traffic.”

This contract brings the total number of Swiss tramway operators that have chosen Stadler’s TRAMLINK model to six.

The vehicles have been in operation in Lugano since 2021 and will soon start operating in the canton of Aargau, Basel and Bern.

This will be the first standard gauge TRAMLINK in Switzerland.
