"Modern, comfortable, reliable, durable and naturally barrier-free – that's the new tram for everyone in Bremen," said of BSAG board spokesman Hajo Müller. "Today's signing of the contract marks a milestone for mass transit in Bremen and the surrounding region. The Avenio is the ideal tram for Bremen's community. With its spacious interior, wireless Internet access and information system with double monitors, it fulfills all the demands for comfort and quality that we and our riders expect of a modern tram."
"Following Munich, The Hague and Doha, Bremen is now the fourth city we are supplying with the Avenio. Our modular design ensures that the Avenio can be tailored to each city's particular needs and can also be flexibly used in a demanding infrastructure," said Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
The Avenio can clearly be identified as a new member of the BSAG fleet: It features the company's signature bright red paint and references to the linear design and the BSAG logo used on earlier trams.
