Streetcars from Stadler

Stadler is a mid-range supplier for modular and tailor made rail vehicles. The customer and their specific requirements are a clear priority for Stadler. This commitment to customer satisfaction is expressed in the company’s motto “Geht nicht gibt es nicht!” (“Impossible is not an option”).

Stadler has answered the growing worldwide interest in developing effective urban public transport systems by developing the Variobahn and Tango tram families. The Variobahn (built under licence from BT) is of modular design, and can be supplied in 100% or 70% low-floor versions. The basic design can be easily varied according to customised requirements with regard to overall Iength, body shell width, track gauge and operating voltage. Both uni- and bi-directional versions are available; multiple-voltage and dual traction (electro-diesel) specifications can also be met.
