Russia Created Unique GLONASS Tram with 100% Low-Floor


Innovative single-section low-floor tram was completely designed and built in Russia. At the moment, the tram started performance trials in Moscow.

Developer and manufacturer of the tramcar is a company “Transport Systems”. The car is built on a production area of Tver Carriage Works (TVZ, a member of ZAO “Transmashholding”).

The created single-section tram model 71-911 with a 100% low-floor has no analogues in the world. The modular design allows constructing on its basis, if necessary, the whole family of tramcars of different sizes and lengths, designed for lines of different charges and length (including, for use in commuter traffic).

The design of the tram uses unique patented rotary elastic low-floor trolleys. Their use provides a high level of ride and full compatibility with existing trams infrastructure in Russian cities.
