The total combined value of the contracts is approximately 108 million USD.
Bombardier Transportation announced today that it has received authorisation for its Type HF6 FLEXITY trams to begin operation on the Düsseldorf and Duisburg networks. This means that Rheinbahn can now start using the trams for passenger service within the Düsseldorf metropolitan area.
