Apparently they’ll run one tram … free:banana: … for a week :cheers:




^^ Oradea ..."tramvai in proba" :)
Eh...OTL are cel mai nasol sistem de control biletelor...credeti-ma...Am stat 16 ani in Oradea, si din cls a 6-a pana in a 11-a mergeam si veneam cu tramvaiul la scoala...(intre "Stadion" si Casa de Cultura a Sindicatelor, unde 1 si 4 au linie comuna--pt pescarush si altii care cunosc). Cel putin pe vremea aia au inceput sa faca controale de genul: se oprea tramvaiul intre 2 statii si vreo 5-6-9 controlori intrau si lua la purecat orice...Nu va zic ce nasol era cand te grabeai sa ajungi undeva...Asa o aiureala nu cred ca mai exista in vreun oras din tara...:eek:hno:...Tovarasul Lupau de la OTL e unul din cei mai injurati oameni din Oradea chiar si acum...stiu ce vb...am aflat insa k si acum controlorii exceleaza in nesimtire...Intradevar s-au refacut tramele stradale si s-au cumparat tramvaie noi...dar st convins ca datorita "mancatorilor de semintze" si a "foarte civilizatilor" controlori, oradenii nu sunt si nu vor fi foarte multumiti de transportul in comun din Oradea. Sunt convins!

Bombardier, Siemens Bid for Russian $1.4 Billion Tram Project

April 24 (Bloomberg) -- Bombardier Inc., Siemens AG and Alstom SA are among the companies bidding for a 33 billion-ruble ($1.4 billion) contract to build a tram network for the Russian city of St. Petersburg and it suburbs.

Bombardier, the world's largest maker of trams and subway cars, is bidding to build the 30-kilometer (18.6-mile) network project in partnership with Paris-based Vinci SA, St. Petersburg Governor Valentina Matviyenko said today in announcing the six bidding groups.

European and Asian trainmakers and construction companies are all jockeying for a share of Russian contracts as the government spends heavily to rebuild its crumbling road and rail infrastructure. Russia's state-owned rail company said it plans to spend as much as $400 billion to overhaul its network.

Among the criteria for the winning bid, to be by announced by Dec. 25, will be how much local production the bidders will commit to, Matviyenko said in St. Petersburg, Russia's second largest city.

Alstom SA, the world's largest trainmaker, has put together a bid with French construction company Bouygues SA. Munich-based Siemens is partnering with Russia's Basic Element and Austrian construction company Strabag SE. Two other bids are led by Italy's Ansaldo STS SpA and Tokyo-based Mitsui & Co. Ltd.

Most of the busses in the Netherlands are free for several days now (not weeks in a row but some seperate dates) which is because of a strike form the drivers. I really like this kind of strikes ;) but now they are planning to shut down all the lines for some days during the exams. This is only the case when they are still not happy with there salaries.
