With a total distance of 18.5 kilometers and 27 stations (out of a total of 48 stations in the Nuremberg/Fürth metropolitan area), on weekdays numerous commuters and students in particular use the U1 line. The number of passengers increases dramatically when there are major events, such as the Nuremberg Christmas Market and trade fairs.
For increased passenger comfort and an optimized passenger flow, in November 2015 Nuremberg’s mass transit operator VAG Verkehrs-Aktiengesellschaft Nuremberg awarded an order to Siemens AG to supply 21 four-car G1-type trains.
