The scheme is one of the key initiatives of a wider plan which aims at renewing and extending the Bratislava tram network, improving the prioritisation and management of bus and trolleybus lines, and renewing the public transport fleet.

More specifically, the initiative involves the purchase of 15 mono-directional and 15 bi-directional trams, which can hold a minimum of 220 passengers each, bringing the total capacity to a minimum of 6 600. These trams will serve on the existing tram network and on the new tram connection to the largest residential district of Petržalka.

An initiative benefitting all Bratislava residents

Main beneficiaries of the project are residents of Bratislava, which has a population of almost 433 000, as well as visitors and daily commuters, of which there are between 150 000 and 200 000. In all, there are approximately 650 000 people a day in Bratislava, with most of them using the public transport system.

Total investment and EU funding

Total investment for the project “Renewal of trams in Bratislava” is EUR 91 260 000, of which the EU’s Cohesion Fund is contributing EUR 61 410 375 from the Operational Programme “Transport” for the 2007 to 2013 programming period. Work falls under the priority axis “Infrastructure for integrated transport systems”.
