The Seattle Department of Transport (SDOT) has awarded CAF with a contract for the supply of 10x 3-module streetcars based on the Urbos platform and 100% low floor.

This agreement is comprehensive of spare parts, special tools and testing equipment. SDOT also reserves the right to purchase up to an additional ten vehicles and their relevant spare parts during the valid term of the Contract. The Contract amount exceeds $50M.

The new vehicles will be equipped with the Onboard Energy Storage System, which is supplied by CAF Power & Automation, allowing them to run on the catenary-free sections of the network.

The Kansas City Transport Authority has also received approval to purchase two additional streetcars from CAF to add to the four streetcars previously supplied which are in revenue service since last year.
