Wooden seats. More hygienic and robust...

I see buttons and handles on the wall where there would be a door, but it doesn't look like a door at all - more like a small panel between windows.

Edit - And there are no rails on the ceiling. What is one supposed to hold onto when the tram is packed with commuters?

I will let you in on it. The guy sitting takes up two seats. So again its a tram made for anorexic people.

Two seats on either side making four in a row rather than three in total in a row on the older trams?

For them its maybe something new. Travelling on a tram!

And at least one does not have to sit on urine soaked cloth seats

So. Next comes ( and I would guess very soon ) the fare increases to pay fot it all.

Not sure about that. The purchase of new vehicles is a continuous process and the budget is reserved yearly using normal revenue. Fare increases happen when the entire system becomes not sustainable anymore due to big-picture causes, very rarely due to a single event (tram purchase, line extension etc).

Passive aggressive fat shaming is the Swiss way.
