Innovative trams, streetcars, and light rail vehicles
Cities around the world are facing new challenges: parking space, traffic gridlock and stricter emission guidelines. Urban planners and transport companies are turning to trams and light rail as a powerful, environmentally friendly and also highly economical means of transport. Existing lines are being extended and whole new networks are in planning, often for the heart of busy urban districts. Low-floor concepts with low-level entrances, car floors without steps and the right level of comfort are the main criteria for such light rail vehicles. Siemens offers you trams and light rail vehicles that optimally fit your requirements and your city, such as innovative single-articulated trams or highly flexible multi-articulated trams from the Avenio family. We have also developed a separate platform to meet specific North American market requirements with regard to technical standards, operating conditions, and localization.

Since 1881 Siemens has been building electric trams. These many years of experience and the knowledge recently gained with the over 500 delivered Combino trams make Siemens a strong and reliable partner for communities and cities.

For all infrastructures and transport requirements and for every cityscape – Siemens’ light rail vehicles help cities make mobility more sustainable, economical and attractive.
