All trams in service in Munich


All eight new Siemens Avenio trams are in revenue passenger service in Munich.

The Munich city utility company (SWM) ordered the trams in October 2012 in order to modernize and supplement its existing fleet for the light rail network of the MVG (Munich Transportation Corporation). The tram for MVG has the customer type designation T1.

The first trams have been in service in Munich since September 2014. The Avenio represents the new generation of Siemens trams which is being deployed in Munich for the first time in the world.

"Since our Avenio tram entered revenue passenger service for MVG, it has been rated very positively by almost all of the passengers. The quiet and smooth running characteristics of the vehicle have been praised in particular. We are very pleased to get such a good rating because it shows that it was right to place particular emphasis on those features during the development phase,” said Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
