The new Zürich tram is coming!

Flexity. But what's strange in the picture? A green star for a correct answer

Re: The new Zürich tram is coming!

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?

Re: The new Zürich tram is coming!

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

Re: The new Zürich tram is coming!

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.
