CAF wins Saint-Etienne tram project

The trams will be 100% low-floor with a total length of 33m across five modules

The trams will be 100% low-floor with a total length of 33m across five 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 2.15m-wide carbody. Moreover, the new units boast new features compared to those currently in operation, as they are bi-directional and have doors on the ends for added operating flexibility.

The new vehicles combine modern aesthetics with state-of-the-art equipment and maximum accessibility without comprising comfort, performance and ease of operation and maintenance. They provide sound evidence of CAF’s capacity to cater for the specific requirements of each customer.
