Schwebebahn Wuppertal

As a world-famous landmark, the design of the flat front of the vehicle is a reminiscence to its predecessors. New characteristic elements are the slight inclination downwards, which is a consequence of a suspended monorail, and the exposed side windows. Despite the low ceiling the interior is spacious and clear. Vivid flooring colors find their equivalent in the seat upholstery and accentuate the interior. A novelty in public transportation are light, self supporting wooden seats. The asymmetric layout of the vehicle is consistently implemented into the ceiling design. Panoramic glazing from floor to ceiling makes the rear end spectacular.
