Bombardier Flexity Swift vehicles have been supplied in two different versions. Of these vehicles, 54 are the 25-metre long U5-25 version and 46 vehicles the 50-metre long U5-50 version Both versions are two-way vehicles. In terms of internal fittings, VGF has largely followed the style of the tried-and-tested S carriages.
