Vienna: First test run with the new Metro ‘X-Wagen’

Passenger service from 2022 after several thousand test kilometres

The pre-series train was delivered to Wiener Linien in July 2020. Since then, the new metro will be thoroughly checked until it will start passenger service on the U1, U2, U3 and U4 lines from 2022 when it receives its operation approval. The X-car will be an ‘experienced’ train – with several thousand accumulated test kilometers over more than 250 test days.
