Prague Tram redesign

tram_porsche2xLooks like Prague’s Porsche designed trams are going to be tweaked. Whilst they look distinctively awesome and certainly will enhance the tram fleet on Prague’s streets, there are distinct issues with space on the inside and the seating arrangement is somewhat strange. Prague Radio has an article about the redesign. I would fall into the "like them" camp, but would request seating to be removed from the door ways to allow more passenger, pushchair and wheel chair space. Ventilation does need to be improved, but the overall design aesthetics are superb. The older generations may not like the looks (this is a generation who lived with concrete paneled buildings and who generally treated the fabulous architecture with disdain), they can at least get on the trams without having to climb up steep stairs. Just can’t please everyone.
