CAF to supply 22 LRV units for the city of Bonn


The fleet, which can be increased by two additional units, will allow both operators to provide service in Bonn while also running on part of the intercity lines connecting the nearby city of Cologne, for which an increase in frequencies of service is planned.

The CAF vehicles will be high-floor bi-directional units with a length of 28 metres and similar in design and dimensions to the units called "Stadtbahnwagen B", a vehicle type that has been in service for many years now on a number of networks in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. CAF units will feature the latest innovations with regard to comfort and safety.
