FIRST OF NEW CAF TRAM ORDER ARRIVES IN BUDAPEST

 

Compartments of the first of 51 Spanish CAF trams to be assembled in Budapest have arrived in the city, municipal public transport company BKK said on Monday. The new compartments will increase the ratio of low-floor trams in Budapest from the current 30% to 40, BKK added. The CAF components will be assembled by Hungarian mechanics supervised by the trams’ Spanish manufacturer, the company said, adding that all trams were expected to arrive by late summer in 2026. The new trams purchased with European Union co-financing will run in south-eastern Budapest. BKK said it was mulling the purchase of another 110 modern trams before 2030.
