Siemens Mobility and Deutsche Bahn have jointly launched a groundbreaking project that takes public transportation in Munich to a new level. As part of this pioneering collaboration, modern S-Bahn trains have been developed to provide passengers with an even more pleasant and efficient travel experience. The new S-Bahn trains not only promise increased capacity but also set new standards in terms of comfort, sustainability, and technology.

Seating areas have over 10 cm more seat spacing for additional legroom, each equipped with storage surfaces, regular power outlets, and USB power outlets. (©Siemens Mobility GmbH)

In addition to the classic 3-seater and 4-seater seating areas, passengers can also take a seat in group and family areas. (©Siemens Mobility GmbH)

The trains are equipped with five large multi-purpose areas featuring automatically lockable folding seats, which can be used situationally to provide extra seating or additional storage space. (©Siemens Mobility GmbH)

Emphasis on accessibility: There are dedicated areas for wheelchairs at both ends of the train. The doors of the wheelchair areas have automatic sliding steps (upon request) to bridge the gap. (©Siemens Mobility GmbH)

There are displays inside and outside above the doors, on the ceiling, and in the transitions that provide real-time information about the journey progress, stations, occupancy, or offer guidance before disembarking about the platforms at the next station. (©Siemens Mobility GmbH)
