5 new Pesa Swing trams will be added to Sofia fleet next year. Polish forumers say that №366, which is now testing in Bydgoszcz will be one of them, because of the VIN, which matches with 122NaSF model.

20 Prague trams for Sofia

Sofia has purchased 20 old Tarta T6A5 trams from the Czech capital. The trams are made between 1995 and 1997 and they will serve line 22 in Sofia. The contract is very cheap - only 14 000 euro per tram. They should start arriving at the beginning of 2016.

Is this project approved and what timeline it is?

There is currently a public tender for this reconstruction. You can check it out: here.

The tenders submitted will be opened on the 02 February. According to the contract notice, the project must be completed by 31/12/2018. However, since one of the selection criteria is the length of works (and design), I expect that it will be completed much earlier.

The NDK tram-trolleybus stop is well known for the traffic accidents, which often happens there. So you can find pictures especially with cars crashed onto the stop. For example:







You can check it also on Google Street View

Contrasting with metro system, tram system in Sofia is not expanding now; even some routes are closing and being replaced by metro. Despite this, it is a large network in Europe. Latest rolling stocks are very attractive, with aerodynamic design.

One interesting thing is, a small part of the network is underground. I saw the map where NDK area has both underground tram and underground metro. Do they share same tunnel or separate? Please write some details about this underground tram area.

Ashis, I asked similar question above and you can see pictures of that underground tram stop. Tram tunnel is separate to metro tunnel and there are not on the same level, but it shares with car traffic. Also there is an interchange between tram stop and metro station, so you can see here on this Google Street View:

Does anyone know when the 5 PESA trams will finally join the fleet here in Sofia? Is there a copy of the Tender / Technical Specification still available somewhere? Thank you.
