Siemens and Aarsleff Rail will provide the trains for the light rail. The trains will be of the same kind as in Hague and Munich.

The trains will be 2.65 metres in breadth, 3.5 metres high and 37 metres long. They will be powered via a catenary line and the trains will mostly run on their own fixed track. At crossroads and a few other places, they will blend in with other traffic. A light rail train can make sharper turns, brake faster and handle steeper inclines than an ordinary train. This makes them the best option in urban areas.

One train seats 260 passengers, which corresponds to four urban buses. Each train will have one flexi area with space for wheelchairs, prams and also bicycles. 

Line and stations

7 stations will be in Lyngby-Taarbæk.

At six stations it will be possible to change to S-train: Lyngby, Buddinge, Herlev, Glostrup, Vallensbæk and Ishøj.

The light rail will have 29 stations over 28 kilometres. The statoons will be established in partnership between the Danish State, the Capital Region and the 11 municipalities behind the Greater Copenhagen Light Rail system.
