CANBERRA STREETCAR

CAF will supply the new streetcars for the Canberra City. CAF is member of the Canberra Metro Consortium entrusted with the design, construction, maintenance and operation of the new streetcar line for a term of 20 years. This line will be 12 kilometres long and have 13 stops to link the area of Gungahlin with the centre of the Australian capital.

Vehicles are made of 5 modules based on the Urbos platform. These are 100% low floor bidirectional vehicles providing easy access and moving inside the streetcar for all users. The units are designed for the eventual retrofit of an on-board energy storage system which enables catenary-free running between stations.

This project adds to other streetcar projects made by CAF for Sidney which are currently providing revenue service on the Inner West Tram.
