NEWCASTLE STREETCAR

CAF will supply the new light rail vehicles for Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW).This new fleet will run on the streetcar network of Newcastle in Australia.

Vehicles belong to the URBOS streetcar platform and combine modern aesthetics with cutting-edge equipment and maximum accessibility without compromising comfort, performance and ease of operation and maintenance. These new 100% low floor vehicles are made of 5 modules which make boarding and alighting all the more easier as the floor is at the exact same height as the platform.

CAF is one of the main Urban Rail Vehicle suppliers in Australia showcasing projects in other cities such as Canberra and Sydney.
