There’s a new streetcar being planned for 2018 in Utretcht that will run between the Central Station and the university area. There will be about 7 intermediate stops in between with about twenty seven new trams. This hopefully will be convenient for transit, carrying about 550 passengers per run and running coupled during the day. Check out the map to see more of what this tram will offer.
- Twenty seven new trams have been ordered from CAF, the first of which has arrived at the depot in Nieuwegein in December 2016 for testing
- All vehicles will be 32 meters long. During daytime they’ll run coupled, with a total capacity of some 550 passengers per run.
- For this new line we’ve made a strip map. One will be placed above every other door in the vehicles, alternating with our house rules.
