Bombardier to supply new Hamburg S-Bahn trains

Listen to this article

S-Bahn, a subsidiary of DB Regio AG, has awarded Bombardier a contract for 60 new single and dual-voltage commuter trains.

The order follows confirmation from the Hamburg Parliament that S-Bahn will continue to operate Hamburg’s urban network for another 15 years from 2018.

The single-voltage trains will run on the S-Bahn network, while the dual-voltage will operate on extensions to Hamburg’s suburban regions – allowing direct services into the city centre for the first time.

The contract, which has been valued at around 327 million euro, includes an option for 86 additional trains up to 2018.

The contract is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018, with the first train due to be delivered in 2016.
