DB | ET423 MODERNIZATION
Growing passenger numbers have pushed the Munich S-Bahn network close to it’s limit. In avoidance of impending inconveniences for travelers, the federal state of Bavaria has decreed the modernization of the current fleet. Therefore, the Bavarian Railway Company (BEG) has joined forces with Neomind.
Goal of the project was to develop a new interior concept for the class 423 suburban trains that increases the overall capacity of the fleet. Key insights from intense on-site research and customer surveys resulted in a more open spacial concept with a clear functional division that allows passengers to spread more evenly throughout the whole car. All elements of the new interior are designed to provide a maximum amount of comfort and safety for the customer. Find more info on the project at Bahnland Bayern.
