The contract is worth over 175 million euros ($277M) and includes an option for up to an additional 180 cars. With this largest light rail vehicle order ever in the U.S., Siemens stays on the road to success in North America's light rail market and surpasses the order volume from its most recent win in Denver for 55 light rail vehicles.

This is UTA's fourth order with Siemens, bringing the total number of Siemens vehicles for Salt Lake City to 117. “Utah is the fifth fastest growing state in the U.S. and the expansion of our rail system brings us closer to creating a more sustainable and less congested metro area for us and the next generation.” said John Inglish, UTA General Manager. UTA's FrontLines ambitious rail expansion to build 70 miles of rail in seven years includes four new light rail lines. All S 70 vehicles are scheduled to be ready for service by 2012 and will be built in the Siemens manufacturing facility in Sacramento, CA.
