Together with Deutsche Bahn (DB), ÖBB presented the modernized couchette car Comfort in Hamburg. It is being used in more and more Nightjet trains and also to and from Hamburg. In a so-called upgrade program, ÖBB converted a total of 22 seating cars from the existing night train fleet into new multifunctional couchette cars.

Sabine Stock, Member of the Management Board of ÖBB-Personenverkehr AG: "By 2026, we want to have doubled the number of Nightjet passengers to three million annually. To achieve this, it is not only important to add new destinations to our Europe-wide night train network but also to offer modern and comfortable night trains. With the Nightjet upgrade program, we have transformed conventional seating cars into modern multifunction couchette cars. As a result, we are increasing sleeping comfort and privacy for our passengers."

Stefanie Berk, Marketing Director DB Fernverkehr: "The Nightjet train is not only a strong symbol for climate-friendly travel but also for a connected, borderless Europe. Together with ÖBB and our other European partner railroads, we will be connecting 13 European metropolises with millions of inhabitants by rail overnight over the next few years. We are delighted that our passengers can now explore Europe even more comfortably in the new coaches."

The improvements to the Comfort couchette cars at a glance:

  • More comfort for families: the newly designed 4-seater compartments with fixed beds increase travel comfort, especially for families. The new multifunction couchette cars also have a parking space for baby carriages
  • More comfort for passengers with limited mobility: Each multifunction couchette car is equipped with a modern barrier-free compartment with two beds and a barrier-free WC
  • More comfort for cyclists: All newly designed couchette cars have three bicycle parking spaces. It means that bicycle transport will be possible on almost all Nightjet lines in the future
  • Technical innovations and free WLAN: Free WLAN and numerous innovations make travel even more comfortable. These include charging options via USB/socket at every couchette and an operating display with various comfort functions, including light control and a service call
  • For an even greater sense of security, the new trolleys are equipped with an electronic access system using NFC cards and video surveillance
