On 4 February 2019 at Plzeň works Škoda formally handed over the very last Type 15T ForCity Alfa trams ordered by DP Praha. This concludes one of the largest tram orders ever in Škoda Transportation's history, the contract being for 250 of these 100 % low floor, three-section vehicles, mounted on fully pivoting bogies. The first of the batch was delivered on 28 January 2011. Over the eight ensuing years the design of the last 125 trams of the batch was modified, with a HVAC system, different seat units, WiFi reception and a revised livery. Škoda states that between January 2011 and February 2019, these ForCity trams have clocked up over 50 million km in the Czech capital.
