All the coaches are supplied with a telephone on board and lifting-platforms, they guarantee a perfect ergonomics of the inside and assure high performances.
Some of the new coaches are electrical and they'll be employed mostly in the historical centre, to prove the city efforts in the ecological transportation; others need GPL and they'll have part in the atmospherical pollution reduction.

Along the corridor a tactile path helps the blind.
