Plzeň to buy 22 low-floor trams from Škoda Transportation

Plzeň municipal transport operator PMDP will buy 22 state-of-the-art fully airconditioned low-floor trams from Škoda Transportation

The value of the contract including an option may exceed CZK 1 billion. “We will get the first two ones in 2020, with others to follow until the end of 2023,” says Michal Kraus, Chairman of the Board of PMDP. “Following Ostrava, the West Bohemian capital will become the second Czech city to operate the new generation of our most state-of-the-art trams,” said Petr Brzezina, CEO of Škoda Transportation. The vehicles for Plzeň are based on the ForCity Smart tram series. Similar vehicles are already operating in Helsinki and will soon be delivered to three German cities – Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg – as well as Tampere, Finland.
