VGF (Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt) is introducing the FLEXITY Swift from Bombardier Transportation as type U5 into their vehicle fleet. Under the slogan All aboard the VGF runs a transport network with a total of 444 km of track and carries more than 500.000 passengers a day. The U5 is thus a typical public transportation system for all sectors of the population. The vehicle has important improvements which will benefit, above all, older people and those with limited mobility. For the redesign the advisory board and the disabled peoples consortium were involved. The FLEXITY Swift trains have been in use in Frankfurt since September 2008.
