The Niederflur-Express-Triebzug (NExT, English: low-floor express trainset) is an electric multiple unit light commuter train developed by Stadler Rail for the Swiss Regionalverkehr Bern-Solothurn (RBS) railway. With a top speed of 120 km/h, it is the fastest metre gauge train in Switzerland.[2]

Six three-carriage trains are scheduled to be delivered in 2009 at a cost of 53.4 million CHF. They are to be used for express service between Berne and Solothurn.[2][dated info]

The Neue Zürcher Zeitung commented favourably on the train's angular design and use of interior space. It commended RBS for setting "new standards of design and comfort" in Swiss commuter transport with the NExT.[2]
