The first phase of Aarhus’ tram-train network will open on 23 September, Aarhus Letbane has announced.

An initial service of three vehicles will traverse the Aarhus H – Universitetshospitalet route, with an extension south to Odder opening in early December, and a northern section to Grenaa in early 2018.

Stadler will be supplying two types of vehicles to run the route: the first of 12 three-car Tango tram-trains was delivered in September 2016, while a further 14 three-section Variobahn trams will also be supplied, the first having arrived in June 2016.
