A newcomer from Berlin is ceremoniously greeted in the state capital of Styria


The first of 45 Variobahn trams has been ceremoniously delivered to Graz AG.
“We thank Graz AG for the trust it has placed in us”, explains Michael Daum, CEO of Stadler Pankow GmbH. “We worked together very successfully and can now deliver the first vehicle on time. Understandably, every operator has his own ideas on how his future trams should look.” Michael Daum further states, “Amongst other things, our competence lies in the ability to implement these visual and functional needs.” 
The interests of people with limited mobility were particularly considered for the Graz tram. Thus the Variobahn is fitted with optical and acoustical information support devices. Its handrails and doors have high-contrast colouring, and the second door’s entryway has a folding ramp.
“Close co-operation with disabled persons organisations have greatly assisted us in implementing their interests,” says Annegret Schulz, Project Manager, Stadler Pankow GmbH.  
The Variobahn for Graz is entirely low-floored and provides a bright and friendly interior that offers seating for 145 passengers. Furthermore, the unidirectional vehicles are designed with two multi-purpose areas in which wheelchairs and pushchairs can be conveniently moved.
