The Flexity Outlook family are articulated light-rail trams manufactured by Bombardier Transportation. Part of the Flexity family, although their designs are often customised heavily to meet the technical needs and aesthetic designs, they fall into two distinct sub-categories with dramatically different appearances.

Eurotram

The Eurotram has a modern design that makes it look almost as much like a train as a tram, and has large windows along its entire length. It is used by Strasbourgmarker, Milanmarker, and the Porto Metro.

The design was acquired by Bombardier when they took over Adtranz. In 2003 the design was taken on a marketing tour of Australia, with Porto tram number 018 shortened by 2 modules and put on display in Sydneymarker on the Metro Light Rail. It was then taken to Melbournemarker where it operated on the local tram network between January and March 2003 as a 7 section tram.

Cityrunner

The more common Cityrunner, which has a more traditional tram design, is used by several cities in Austriamarker (in Innsbruckmarker, Linzmarker and Grazmarker), also Łódźmarker (Polandmarker), Genevamarker (Switzerlandmarker), Eskişehirmarker (Turkeymarker), and Brusselsmarker, and vehicles for Marseillemarker, Valenciamarker and Alicantemarker are in the design and production phase. The Toronto Transit Commission (Canadamarker) has also selected it for upgrading its current fleet, with possible use for the Transit City plan as well.




Both models have 100%-low floor. While most Flexity Outlook trams are bi-directional, Bombardier have built single-ended versions for cities including Graz, Łódź and Milan and will build the the latter for Toronto's non-Transit City light rail routes. They follow a modular design, allowing them to be customised for use on networks that require narrow vehicles or tight curve radii, or simply to give them a unique appearance for each city. In the case of Toronto, its version of the Outlook will be gauged to the commission's own gauge.

The Flexity Outlook's closest competitors are the Citadis from Alstom, the Combino and Avanto from Siemens, and Bombardier's other Flexity trams.

Vancouver Demo Line

Bombardier Transportation will be operating a Flexity Outlook demo system in Vancouver during the 2010 Games from January 21 to March 21, 2010. It will not be part of an official transit link of TransLink.

The temporary line will operate from Granville Island to the Olympic Village Canada Line Station at 2nd Avenue.

Service consists of a 1.8 kilometre link with 4 stations with cars operating every 10 minutes.
