The Bombardier T2000, or Tram 2000, is a low floor tram design developed for use on the Brussels tram system. The Brussels tram system has a fleet of 51 cars and were delivered from 1993 to 1995. The cars are double ended cars with driver's cabin on both ends and separated from passengers. Made in Germany, they have a 100% low-floor design, which was later used on Flexity Outlook vehicles ordered by STIB as the successor to the T2000.
