Notes:
The first six of these trams were delivered during 2012 to enable an enhanced service to be operated. They can usually be found working to Elmers End although can also be used on services to Beckenham Junction. It was announced in August 2013 that a further four Variotrams were to be ordered to further enhance capacity on the network. They are expected to be delivered in 2015.
2554 was the first Variotram to carry passengers when it did so briefly on Friday 30th March 2012. The tram carries a special advert livery for Croydon in recognition of the local Council part funding the new trams.
