Light Rail Cars Ordered

San Diego Trolley

UTA has ordered 77 new light rail cars for the expansion of the system that will be taking place over the next few years.

Unlike the previous cars that UTA ordered from Siemens which were SD100 and SD160 models, these new cars will be the S70 low floor model as the one pictured here from San Diego.

San Diego currently uses these cars on their Green line which travels from Old Town out to Santee. Unfortunately I never had the chance to ride one and try them out since every time I hopped the train it was a set of older cars.
