COMMUTER TRAIN NS CIVITY

CAF signed a contract with the Dutch operator Nederlandse Spoorwegen in 2014 to supply Civity type commuter trains. These new electric units will run in three, four and six car consists, providing "Sprinter" services on the Dutch railway network.

This is a low floor train, designed to provide maximum passenger comfort. Civity trains features prime access conditions for persons with reduced mobility, with PRM adapted bathroom facilities, and areas reserved specifically for wheelchairs.

These units, named the Sprinter New Generation, feature leading edge comfort, efficiency and safety technology. Aside from this, the aerodynamic design of the units, the shared bogie system for weight reduction, and other technological advances provide for optimum power efficiency.

Trains are scheduled to start revenue service from 2018.
