Prague has a new sightseeing tram – T3 Coupé

Prague has a new sightseeing tram – T3 Coupé

Trams T3 and Prague inherently belong together. The Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) in collaboration with the Anna Marešová Designers Studio has  created a new concept of a cruise tram that follows up on the tradition of the  legendary Tatra T3 vehicles and while putting it in a new context it respects its authentic look. Opening of the rear of the vehicle and using the original features combined with modern technologies led to Ihe creation of an old-timer that testifies that public transport also can provide true luxury. This tram not  only offers a comfortable ride in Prague in a semi-open car, but it also provides a stylish interior experience. The tram was made in the DPP's Tram Repair Shop in Prague Hostivař. The entire project, i.e. from the design to the  complete production of the vehicle, lasted two years. The T3 Coupé Tram is  inspired by the legendary Czechoslovak T3 tram cars.

DPP to start testing a unique anti-collision system for trams

Tram

The Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) schedules first tests of an  anti-collision system for trams for September this year. The tests will be  performed on a tram of type T6A5 in the area of Tram repair in Malešice. The  anti-collision system should prevent railway accidents, i.e. in case of Prague public transport accidents between trams. The system has not yet been fully implemented in the city tram transport. If the system is functional, further testing on selected trams in operation is expected.

Historické fotografie - Trolejbusy

On Sunday, 15 October, 2017 The Prague Public Transit Company began the trial operation of the electric-powered bus with dynamic charging - SOR TNB12, following the execution of nearly one kilometre long overhead line in Prosecká Street. This section has been chosen due to a very steep hill that would otherwise limit battery life. The trolley track construction took about two months and was implemented by DPP staff. Testing during the winter, which will best examine the system will be most important.
