Each LRV is 32m long and 2.4m wide with five double and two single doors. The air-conditioned vehicles can accommodate up to 229 passengers and have multi-purpose areas for pushchairs and wheelchairs.

"The vehicle's most prominent features are the blue ceiling with LED lighting, an allegory to the stars in the sky, and the city's coat of arms with the Krakow dragon on passenger seats," says Mr Julian Pilszczek, CEO of MPK Krakow.

Bombardier has been supplying LRVs to Krakow since 1998 when an initial order for 14 vehicles was placed. MPK exercised options for 14 more LRVs in 2001 and another 24 in 2006. The latest order for 24 Flexity Classic vehicles was placed in 2010.
