Belarusian tramcars, longest in CIS, to be exported to St. Petersburg

Belarusian tramcars in St. Petersburg: a batch of six trains will appear in the northern capital of Russia in the autumn of 2017.

Engineers from Belarus, Czechia, Spain and Switzerland took part in the development of this urban transport.

All tramcars are more comfortable: the cabin has air conditioning and sockets have been added for convenience. The cars have systems counting passengers as well as systems for video surveillance and information boards.

Chizhiki - this is how the Belarusian tramcars are called in St. Petersburg - became the longest train in the CIS, which includes some countries of the former Soviet Union. Each car will accommodate more than 300 passengers, and its length is 34 meters.
