The tram type Augsburg M8c has two drivers' cabs and doors on both sides, so it doesn't need a proper turnaround loop. These are the only Augsburg trams with two cabs. Augsburg is already trying to get rid of these high-floor types. Some of them have been sold to Elblag in Poland and some others to Darmstadt. There were originally 12 of these trams and five were already sold 2012-13.

Class 6000 Hannover trams run in the city center underground in a metro like fashion. While stopping at the high metro style platforms, they only open a part of their doors, thereby creating a level low-floor entry for passengers. While stopping at the street level stops, the trams can also open the lower part of their doors together with stairs.
