The Viennese EcoTram – The Future Of Tramways?

Is the Viennese ‘EcoTram’, the future of trams?

Ever since 2009, Wiener Linien has been collaborating with several companies on the so called ‘EcoTram Project’, which has been funded by the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund. The goal is to evaluate and ascertain possible energy savings in air-conditioning, heating and ventilation in low-floor trams (niederflurwagen). First the EcoTram underwent tests in a climatic wind tunnel and it’s now being tested on the tracks of Line 62 until the end of March 2014.
