Transitio AB Orders 12 Additional KISS Trains

Swedish train operator Transitio AB has ordered a further 12 double-decker KISS trains from Stadler.

Transitio AB will operate the trains under its Mälab brand. The contract is worth 133.3 million CHF. It is an option from the 2016 framework agreement between the two parties. Stadler will deliver the trains in autumn 2021. They will then serve the Mälaren region to the west of Stockholm, the Swedish capital.

In 2016, when Transitio AB and Stadler signed the framework agreement, the two companies also signed an initial contract for double-decker trains for a number of different regions in Sweden. Transitio AB ordered 33 trains for Mälab, and then triggered an initial option by ordering eight additional trains for Uppsala Länstrafik. This second option comprises 12 trains for Mälab. Consequently, Transitio has ordered a total of 53 KISS trains from Stadler.
