Advantages and disadvantage of trams with Porsche design

Tram Skoda T14 design Porsche Many people in Prague admire the new design of twenty new trams Skoda T14. The Porsche design was awarded the best product of 2007 by the Design Centre of the Czech Republic.

These modern trams were constructed especially for the narrow streets of Prague, the price of one tram is 57 million CZK. Porsche trams can be seen on lines 3, 9, 12, 14, 22 and 26. The city of Prague wants to buy 60 of them by 2010.

There are several advantages and disadvantages of the trams. The trams is partly low-floor, modern, safe, with camera system inside the vehicle and with a comfortable cabin for drivers. On the other hand, the trams are too noisy, there is not enough space for the passengers there and the front door can be used only by the drivers (which confuses blind people). The developers are now trying to relieve the disadvantages.

    Those new trams feel smaller inside (at least for me), but when they are not full of people they are more comfortable than the old ones. One thing I like the most is the big seat in the back of the tram with a big window over you. Definitely worth a try.
