Russia: The new six low-floor single-car 71-911 trams has started operating on a modernised tram track in Kursk, Russia, with two similar vehicles on standby.

This week, the trams will start running the entire 19 km line. The new LRVs, dubbed Lvyonok, can carry up to 160 passengers, 40 of them seated. The new trams are more comfortable than the ones the city bought before. They have four wider doors, an air-conditioning system, and electronic display.

The project to modernise the tram network in the city of Kursk is being implemented under a concession agreement signed in August 2022 with Movista Regions, a public transport development company. The project will ensure the reconstruction of 42.6 km of tracks, eight traction stations and depots, and the delivery of 22 single-car trams. The total value of the contract is RUB 12.9 bln ($141 mln) provided by Russia’s national economic development agency VEB.RF. The remaining 14 trams will be delivered later this year.
