Eskisehir tram tender cancelled


Tender of 14 new trams for Eskisehir is cancelled.

The tender announced by Eskisehir Metropolitan Municipality for 14 new tram cars on 25th March, has been cancelled since the only offer given is much higher than expected.

That offer was given by Pojazdy Szynowe Ğesa Bydgoszcz S.A from Polland. The company’s offer is € 26.6mn. Nine companies had bought documents of tender.

Unlike all other trams in Turkey, Eskisehir tram runs on 1000 mm railway gauge. Currently Eskisehir has 33 Bombardier tram sets running on 36.5-km-long tram network.
