Ostrava to allocate decommissioned trams and buses to help Ukraine
The offeris related to the gradual replacement with newer vehicles, especially the Skoda 39T ForCity Smart
The Ostrava public transport company (DPO) will offer fewer of the decommissioned T3 and T6A5 trams for sale. Part of the operational trams will be earmarked for aid to Ukraine, said Ostrava mayor Tomas Macura.
Ostrava is now completing the transfer of decommissioned buses and firefighting equipment to Ukraine. Prague has previously announced a similar plan to donate some of the trams it would otherwise scrap.
The Ostrava public transport company (DPO) has issued a tender for the sale of 26 trams at a price of CZK 2.259 million; twenty T3 and six T6A5 trams. Bids can be submitted individually. This is the largest package of scrapped trams available from Czech transport companies so far this year. The sale is related to the gradual replacement with newer vehicles, especially the Skoda 39T ForCity Smart.
