€300 million Flexity contract

Bombardier has won a €300 million contract to supply 146 Bombardier Flexity light rail vehicles to the Frankfurt Transport Authority.


Bombardier Transportation has won a new contract to supply 146 Bombardier Flexity Swift high-floor light rail vehicles to the Frankfurt Transport Authority (VFG).



The firm order is valued at approximately €300 million and includes an option for up to 24 additional vehicles. Deliveries of the vehicles are scheduled to take place between May 2008 and mid 2015.



The contract will be executed in Germany. The Flexity Swift vehicles will be designed and manufactured at Bombardier’s site in Bautzen, with electrical equipment being supplied by its plant in Mannheim. The bogies will be produced at Bombardier’s Siegen production facility.


The new Flexity Swift vehicles will be used in Frankfurt‘s high-floor network. The design concept is derived from the Bombardier Flexity Classic trams which have been in successful revenue service in Frankfurt since October 2003. A total of 65 Flexity Classic trams have been ordered by VGF since June 2002.
