Just over three weeks ago I visited the Bombardier Transportation factory in Vienna with Junge Wirtschaft Wien.
The site produces trams and light rail vehicles. We had a closer look at the new Flexity Wien model (pictured to the right).
The first one hit the streets in December 2018 and the trams have been introduced on a couple more lines since then. They will be used all across the city by 2025.
Vehicles from the site are delivered all over Europe. I lived in Manchester for over five years but never knew that the trams came all the way from Vienna on special lorries and ferries.
