The NS Flirt is an electric multiple unit built for the Nederlandse Spoorwegen by the Swiss train manufacturer Stadler, based on their popular Flirt 3 platform. Initially the trains are being introduced to deal with the rise in passenger numbers on the main lines.
The Flirt (acronyn for Flinker Leichter Innovativer Regionaltriebzug) is typified by a light and airy interior. This is possible due to the use of jacobs bogies combined with wide, open carriage joins and a low floor. The low floor, in combination with extendable steps, makes this train much easier for people with physical disabilities. The combination of low weight and high traction power makes this train ideal for services with many stops and short waiting times. For the NS, the Flirt 3 will be employed as Sprinters.
