Reliable in every curve
Cities are growing – and as they expand so too do the requirements for local public transport. Trams must manage every curve that comes – flexibly and safely. And even though safety is always the top priority, in times of tight financial budgets the durability of components also plays a critical role – because local public transport needs to remain affordable.
Quality gangway systems from HÜBNER are great for customers – and they also benefit passengers, too.

Safety and comfort
Tram transport has its own requirements. One of the biggest challenges are the tight curves found in cities. HÜBNER produces folding and corrugated bellows that are designed to meet just these needs.
The bellows compensate for all of the extreme movements and provide excellent sound insulation at the same time. For passengers that means that they can move from one part of the tram to the next safely and comfortably.
And the gangway systems also get top marks during maintenance work. The floor elements can be easily removed, allowing access to the vehicle articulation.
Design options in color and form
The special head covering of the gangway bellows fits perfectly with the contours of the tram. Through this optical closure of the lateral vehicle contour, the whole appearance of the tram is upgraded.
And an upgrade in appearance is also provided by innovative new folding bellows designs. They make it possible to give trams an individual and distinctive look. For example, HÜBNER can make the design and color of the bellows match the rest of the vehicle – giving trams a strong and unified look.
