Stadler and the Dutch public transport company HTM in The Hague signed the contract for the supply of 56 Tina light rail vehicles with an option for further trams.
This is Stadler’s fifth order for its latest-generation tram and the first tram order in the Netherlands following the tender award decision in October. The new trams are intended for use on the public transport network in The Hague from 2026.
“We are proud to be able to supply trams to the Netherlands for the first time following the order from HTM. Our Tina trams will enable passengers in the government city on the North Sea to experience a new dimension in comfort and sustainable transport,” Ansgar Brockmeyer, Executive Vice President Sales & Marketing and Deputy Group CEO of Stadler said.
The three-part compositions of the trams are each 36.5 metres long and offer space for 237 passengers. As HTM can operate the vehicles in double traction if required, capacity will be doubled on busy lines and at peak times. In addition to comfort, passengers and road users in The Hague will therefore benefit from a high standard of safety. With a top speed of 70 km/h, the vehicle moves quickly, ensuring an attractive and competitive local public transport service.
The digital and intuitive Uni-Board in the driver’s cab makes it easier for the drivers to operate the tram, so that they can concentrate fully on the road traffic.
The rotating bogie of the new LRV ensures a pleasantly smooth ride, for example. At the same time, the entire vehicle is completely accessible and has a low floor throughout. The spacious multifunctional compartments offer plenty of room for passengers in wheelchairs.
Stadler makes optimum use of the interior dimensions with its clever arrangement and design of seats and handrails. This creates an open feeling of space inside the vehicle thanks to its generous aisle width. The high interior and large panoramic windows add to the feeling of comfort. With their energy-efficient drive, the Tina light rail vehicles also help to improve the environmental footprint of local public transport even further.
“HTM is very pleased with the purchase of the new, wider and modern trams of Stadler. With these trams HTM offers our passengers accessible and comfortable public transportation, and is well equipped for the future of modern mobility”, Jaap Bierman, CEO of HTM said.
