Proposal to award Alstom Transportation for Purchase of Light Rail Trolleys

The proposal to purchase low floor streetcars from Alstom Transportation Inc. is SEPTA’s on February’s board agenda. The base order includes 130 streetcars, with the option to purchase up to 30 additional vehicles. These streetcars are designed with low level floors and ramps for multi-door boarding, providing SEPTA’s customers with accessible, ADA-compliant vehicles. The estimated cost for the base order is $714,239,455, with an additional $148,500,780 for the option order, if exercised. Delivery of the streetcars is expected to start in Spring 2027.
