Roma Capitale awards the tender for the supply of 121 brand new trams

Ludus Magnus e Colosseo
from 31 October 2023 to 31 December 2024

One hundred and twenty-one bi-directional trams - equipped with the most innovative technology and aesthetically qualifying for a city like Rome - worth more than EUR 457 million: after a regular tender, Atac has awarded the supply of the vehicles to the Spanish company CAF (Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles), one of the world leaders in the construction of rail vehicles.

Rome has launched one of the largest tenders ever in Europe, a necessary investment for the city, which, after almost twenty years, is investing to purchase trains for the new and existing lines and to replace the Stanga trams, now seventy years old, which will not be retired but will  serve, after being recovered, the Archeotram line, the new central archaeological area project.

The new trams, more spacious and performing - they will be able to travel without the electric line on some stretches, with less noise, and will be able to cope with smaller radii of curvature - will be 33.5 metres long and will accommodate up to 215 passengers with 68 seats and two seats for the disabled people, who will have footboards to get on board and all the modern equipment to make their journey comfortable.

The vehicles will also equip air conditioning, video surveillance systems, public address systems, passenger counters, and a pedestrian frontal collision warning system.
