The second low-floor tram K1T306 manufactured by the Ukrainian company Tatra-Yug has arrived in Odesa.

Photographs of the tram were published in a local Telegram channel on May 11, the CFTS portal reports.

The photograph shows that the tram has the number 7014. This means that this is the second Tatra-Yug tram in the city, as the first one has the number 7013.

As reported previously, Odesa took delivery of the first low-floor tram of the K1T306 model in the second half of December last year, and it was officially presented at the end of 2023.


Thirteen such trams are to be delivered within the framework of the "Ukraine Urban Public Transport" project, which is financed with loans from the European Investment Bank (EIB).

The tramcar is 26 meters long, can carry up to 300 passengers, and has 71 seats.

The tram's bogies are pivoting and equipped with a two-stage suspension system. This design enhances the tramcar's maneuverability and allows it to operate on uneven tracks.

Tatra-Yug has previously stated that it plans to deliver one new tram to Odesa per month.

Asked why there was a longer pause between deliveries, the company told the CFTS portal that it was still delivering tramcars to Odesa ahead of the approved delivery schedule, as in the case of deliveries to Kyiv.

"The pause was caused by the fact that we have yet to receive payment for the first tram we delivered. This is because of certain bureaucratic issues related to project financing. We expect to receive payment for the first car by the end of May," Tatra-Yug said.
