The EPM Stadler FLIRT electric train arrived at Darnitsa station. According to MINTRANS, the train has arrived for testing, which could take several months. The train consists of five cars. The maximum speed of the electric train is 160 km / h. It has 262 seats for 1st and 2nd class seats, and there are also places for passengers with disabilities.

In early May, Ukrzaliznytsia and Stadler agreed on the possible localization of the production of rolling stock of the Swiss company in Ukraine. Stadler has already chosen a site for localizing production in Ukraine - it was expected that within a year the enterprise will transfer one or two trains to Ukraine for testing, which can be used in the City Exspress project.

“Stadler has already chosen a location in our country. The project, which we are starting to implement, is needed by Kiev and the agglomerations around. Comfortable trains with connections to the metro will unload the entrances to the capital,” said Deputy Head of the President's Office Kirill Tymoshenko.
