In the Netherlands, Amsterdam has bought the Siemens Combino. As you may know, this type of tram has had many technical problems in all cities where it was sold to.


Rotterdam has bought the very succesful Citaro trams from Alstom.


The Hague currently only has somewhat older high-floor trams, but in the near future they will have new low-floor light rail vehicles that run both on the tram network as well as on some former railways. These vehicles are Regio Citadis from Alstom.


On the "fast tram" (light rail) line between Utrecht and Nieuwegein there are old high floor vehicles running, but they've got a recent refurbishment and look pretty modern again:
