In Denmark, DSB has leased 12 Desiro trains since 2002. The trains were originally used between Odense and Svendborg and between Odense and Fredericia, although they were used on Lille Syd. On July 2, 2009, DSB signed an eight-train contract from Siemens for Les Grenaabanen, with an option for 92 others.  Trains were commissioned on 12 December 2010 and served Odderbanen from December 2012.  Grenaabanen and Odderbanen closed in 2016 for a tram network in Aarhus and its satellite cities. The trains were transferred to Svendborgbanen, whose rolling stock was transferred to Lille Syd. By the end of 2018, 24 trains per hour will run in central London during rush hour. Passengers can easily board the train through its wide doors, while the continuous entrance to the 760 mm high platforms offers passengers bicycles, strollers and wheelchairs. The train crashabsorption resistance is in line with the requirements of the STI and EN15227. The operating temperature of the vehicle is between -25 and 45 degrees Celsius, which corresponds to the T3 class in accordance with the European standard EN50125-1. In August 2014, the head of the NMBS/SNCB told the newspapers that Desiro trains had to be repaired too often, i.e.
at a technical intervention rate of 8000 kilometres.  Trains are heavily used on the Brussels regional express network, but also on the InterCity lines between Antwerp and Gant and on the 25kV AC electrified lines in the Belgian Ardennes, where they replaced diesel trains. Swiss federal railways operate two-stage or two-tiered EMUs in the SBB RABe 514 series. They are used as commuter trains in Zurich as part of the S-Bahn Zurich, where 61 sets of four cars have been in service since 2006. More and more people are moving to urban areas. Those who live in the city for a long time often give up cars, but not mobility – because powerful, modern, punctual, environmentally friendly trains facilitate the transition. Trains like those of the Desiro family. End cars have continuously variable low-floor ramps and floors designed for users with reduced mobility. Trains also have large assembly areas and adjacent multifunctional areas that allow passengers to descend quickly. Ecological, calm and test-proof: The Desiro Verve was designed for efficiency. It provides excellent recycling properties, reduced energy consumption, less noise and greenhouse gas emissions – based on careful design analyses and iterations to dramatically reduce train weight. The first ScotRail ordered 22 three and 16 four-car series 380 E2.
 The start of service began on December 8, 2010. They replaced the Juniper series 318 and 334 fleets on the Inverclyde Line and the Ayrshire Coast Line.
