CAF won the tram project for the city of St. Etienne (France) worth EUR 42m. The company will provide the first vehicles in the spring of 2016.
The trams will be 100% low floor with a total length of 33 metres across 5 modules. These vehicles belong to the Urbos Tram family but are adapted to the special characteristics of the Saint-Etienne network: metric gauge track and 2.15 m wide carbody. Moreover, the new units boast new features compared to the units currently in operation, as they are bi-directional and have doors on the ends for added operating flexibility.
