We take a balanced, comprehensive approach to rail-based mobility – from trams, light rail and metro services, to commuter rail lines up to regional services. Reliability, safety, attractiveness and efficiency are our top priorities – which benefit the operators and the environment.
Trams and Light Rail
For over 130 years Siemens has been building electric trams. These many years of experience and the knowledge recently gained with the over 500 delivered Combino trams make Siemens a strong and reliable partner for communities and cities. Our modular vehicle concepts allows us to offer you a solution that fits perfectly into any town or city – including yours. For all infrastructures and transport requirements and for every cityscape – Siemens’ light rail vehicles help cities make mobility more sustainable, economical and attractive.
Whether it’s vehicle length, passenger capacity or adaptation to specific climatic conditions – our modularized metros give you plenty of leeway. To meet your particular demand, we can combine our service-proven metro components with very specific modules to create a strong transit concept that’s right for you.
Commuter and Regional Trains
Today’s commuter and regional services need to meet a host of different demands, depending on the region, operator and connections to other forms of transport. This challenge can only be met with intelligent, flexible train concepts: With vehicles of our Desiro family.
