Škoda and CRRC Qingdao Sifang 27T trams in Qingdao. These trams also feature hydrogen cells. There are 7 trams currently in operation.
http://skoda.cz/cs/press-room/archiv...rovozu-v-cine/

The new line is 10 km long and has 13 stops.









http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/u...ram-route.html
Quote:
The line is worked by a fleet of seven three-section ForCity 15T trams, which were assembled by CRRC Qingdao Sifang under licence from Škoda. The bidirectional cars are 35·2 m long and 2 650 mm wide, with six pairs of double-leaf doors. Each car can accommodate up to 380 passengers, of which 60 are seated. They are based at a depot near Wang Lu stop close to the eastern end of the line at Qianwangtuan.

Most of the route runs on reserved track, where speeds up to 70 km/h are permitted; only around 400 m is located on street. Services are operated by the Qingdao city bus company. End-to-end journey time is 30 min, with the trams operating from 06:30 to 20:30 each day.

Part of the route has been fitted with 750 V DC overhead electrification, but elsewhere the trams are powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The fuel tank can be recharged in around 3 min.

Škoda will also cooperate with CRRC Nanjing Puzhen in Suzhou.

Quote:
Pilsen/Suzhou, 6 April 2016 – Škoda Electric was successful in its tender to provide the complete electrical equipment for trams in the Chinese city of Suzhou. This is a contract for a total of eighteen 100% low-floor five-car trams whose final manufacturer is the Chinese company CRRC Nanjing Puzhen. After the subway projects in Suzhou and trams for Beijing, the Pilsen company can chalk up another success in the demanding Chinese market.

Quote:
CHINA: CRRC Nanjing Puzhen is to supply 18 five-section 100% low-floor trams to operate the second tram line in Suzhou.

Škoda Electric is to supply electrical equipment through its Chinese joint venture Škoda Kingway Electric. Škoda had previously supplied traction equipment to power cars for the Suzhou metro.

Construction of Line 2 started in July 2014. The 15 km route running from Suzhou Bei railway station to Longan Lu is the second of six routes planned for the city’s southwestern Gaoxin district.

Wow, that's really an interesting place in China to build a tram system, with only 330,000 inhabitants, and far from the prosperous coastline. I mean, though it's quite common in Europe for cities/towns of that size to have tram systems, but not in other parts of the world. If this tram construction boom continues, than hundreds of tram systems will pop up in China in the next 10-15 years.

By the way, do you know a good site summarizing the tram systems under construction/planning in China? It's starting to get difficult to keep track of it.

The tram systems' impact on the daily lives in China is negligible right now. Especially when most of the new tram lines are in the new areas.

Using Google's translate feature and search for "China tram" works well.

Mengzi City is on a major corridor connecting Kunming and Hanoi. It's also a popular tourist area.

Oddly enough, the depot is not located near one of the termini, but rather about halfway along the line, exactly between Sanya Lu and Banzha stops. Most stops are island stops, so doors open on the left. Ashis Mitra now has no excuse to make any questions .

Besides that, Huai'an is yet another entry in the lengthy list of Chinese cities with metro plans. So far, 5 urban and 2 suburban lines are drafted, though nothing is solid for now.

http://english.huaian.gov.cn/bdxw/co...511ed00e9.html


Up to May 7th, 2016, passengers taking Huai'an Modern Tram has totaled 1.75 million person-trips since the tram was put into operation on December 28th, 2015, an average of 13,300 person-trips each day. The interval time has reduced to 7 minutes from 15 minutes. The modern tram attracted more and more citizens for its comfort and convenience. The photo above shows the tram is running along Xiangyu Street in the city.

On May 19th the new-generation straddle-type monorail train was on display at the exhibition stand of Chongqing City Transportation Development & Investment Group Co., Ltd. The new train has driverless control with an emergency traction function, which, with a smaller turning radius, is more suitable for the landform of Chongqing. ...

The model is expected to be put into production by the end of the year, with the project matching the related departments in Guizhou already conducted. (Translated by Tang Zhiqiang, Fathom Language Limited)

- Marrakech (Morocco) will buy 18m and 24m trolley bus from Dongfeng/Yangtse ! They will be able to ride with catenary and also without catenary with electric batteries.

I didn't find any 24m trolleybus of Yangtse.

Someone has better news ?

Thank you.

"Straddling bus" starts production in east China


The "straddling bus" or "tunnel bus", which is designed to ease traffic congestion in cities, has been put into production in Changzhou, in east China's Jiangsu province, according to a report by huanqiu.com.

Earlier models show each passenger section of the bus will be 22 meters long, 7.8 meters wide and 4.8 meters high, with 55 seats. Most importantly, the hollow space under the bus allows other vehicles to pass underneath which greatly improves the use of roads with limited space, easing traffic congestion.

The report said the Transit Explore Bus or TEB will be comprised of four passenger rooms on average, and it can be modified according to road conditions.

The bus will be electric and can reach a top speed of 97-129 kilometers per hour.

I never thought they would really pull that one off. Impressed and anxious to see it on the street.
