The San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (SDMTS) last week received the final light-rail vehicle of its 45-vehicle order from Siemens Mobility for the agency’s Mid-Coast Trolley project.
The S700 vehicles will service the Mid-Coast Trolley project, an 11-mile light-rail extension, beginning in late 2021. The $2.1 billion project will extend the UC San Diego Blue Line from Santa Fe Depot in downtown San Diego to the University of California San Diego.
Siemens Mobility dedicated a commemorative plaque to be displayed on Trolley car 5045 in memory of late SDMTS Chief Executive Officer Paul Jablonski, who died in May.
Jablonski helped secure a full-funding grant agreement of $2.1 billion for the construction of the Mid-Coast Trolley extension, SDMTS officials said in a press release.
