S carriages feature the latest technology and offer the greatest possible passenger comfort. The 1.30-metre-wide doors allow passengers to get on and off comfortably, including those in wheelchairs or with prams. Each of the motorised carriages also has an electrically powered extendible ramp for wheelchair users by the first door in the direction of travel. Hanging straps ensure that passengers can stand safely in the passenger compartment, and tactile yellow bars make it easy for visually impaired passengers to recognise the exits. The air conditioning system allows passengers to travel at a pleasant temperature.
