New Generation Tram Simulator for STIB in Brussels

After more than 3 decades of collaboration with the Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company, Transurb continues this fruitful partnership with the delivery of a Compact Simulator that simulates Alstom’s Flexity 2 trams.

Simulator enhanced for light rail training

As the STIB’s tram fleet expands with Tram New Generation (TNG) vehicles from Alstom, Brussel’s tram network can accommodate a growing number of passengers. The Belgian operator therefore chose to invest in a cutting-edge training solution to prepare its drivers to operate these new TNG trams in the best way possible.

That’s why Transurb proposed a simulator that combines pedagogy with the latest technology regarding light rail training. With its large field of view, the delivered Compact Simulator immerses STIB’s learners in a particularly accurate 3D representation of their network and familiarises them with elementary aspects of light rail, such as mixed traffic conditions and peak passengers’ periods.

Shoutout to Alstom and STIB

It has been a pleasure to take part to this tripartite project. We are proud of the simulator we delivered and foresee many productive training sessions to come! We wish our partners a successful continuation in the delivery and reception of the Tram New Generation.
