Calgary Transit ordered 15 more S200 light-rail vehicles from Siemens Mobility to replace the agency’s nearly 40-year-old U2 vehicles, Siemens officials announced earlier this week. 

Siemens has delivered over 260 vehicles for use in the agency’s CTrain light-rail system in Calgary, Alberta. The new order will be built at Siemens’ plant in Sacramento, California.

"These U2 cars have been reliable workhorses that have more than exceeded their expected lifetime and we’re proud at how we’ve been able to update and replace them with our S200s,” said Michael Cahill, president of rolling stock for Siemens Mobility in North America, in a press release.
