On 6 November 2014 the first bi-directional ForCity Plus tram entered test service in Bratislava. The photo shows 7501 running towards Kapucínska street. This is the first of a batch of 15 currently being built by ŠKODA, together with 15 uni-directional ForCities. In April 2014 DP Bratislava ordered further 15 bi-directional trams under an option clause in the contract. Later, a second option, this time for 15 more uni-directional trams, was taken up. The first 45 trams are to be delivered during 2015, and the final 15 by around mid-2016.
