Comfortable seats, air-conditioned interior, modern passenger information system – these are the standard facilities available to passengers traveling on IMPULS trains manufactured by NEWAG from Nowy Sącz.
The next stage of the implementation of the contract for the delivery of two IMPULS 31 WE trains for SKM Trójmiasto has been finalized. Today, passengers can see the trains they will be travelling on in 2016.
The colour scheme for the train interior combines elegant shades of grey and graphite with eye-catching turquoise seats.
The trains will be equipped with mobile, cash-free ticketing machines. Retention-tank toilets will be adapted to the needs of passengers with impaired mobility. Air-conditioned interior, ergonomic seats, Internet access, electric sockets and designated space for transporting bicycles ensure travelling comfort. The trains will also have a modern audio-visual passenger information system, an interior monitoring system and an intercom allowing for passengers’ contact with the train crew.
The IMPULS trains, which will start operating in the second quarter of 2016, are four-unit trains of 74 400 mm in length, with passenger capacity of 511 people including 152 seating capacity. Each unit will have 2 pairs of doors and the floor height will be adjusted to the platform height of the SKM Trójmiasto (960 mm). An additional extendable step, bridging the gap between the train and the platform, will be mounted.
The trains will meet strict European crashworthiness and collision standards. They will be able to travel with an operational speed of 160 km/h.
