Rolling stock[edit]

Currently four types of trams are operating in Wrocław: Konstal 105Na, Protram 204 WrAs, Protram 205 WrAs, Škoda 16 T and Škoda 19 T. The 105N type wagons are subjected to various upgrades (and after the upgrade they are marked 105NWr).

In the period from 1991–2004, no new trams were bought; only repairs and upgrades of models Konstal 105N and Konstal 105Na were performed. During 2005–2008, six 2-wagon Protram 204 WrAs and ten low-floor Protram 205 WrAs vehicles were bought, all produced by RMT Protram Wrocław. From December 2006 to November 2007, seventeen low-floor wagons Škoda 16 T were acquired.
