RATP Dev wins Ariz. streetcar contract

Posted on December 14, 2012

RATP Dev won the tender to operate and maintain the network of the first streetcar line in Tucson, Ariz., through its subsidiary RDMT and is thus continuing to expand in the U.S.

The "Sun Link Tucson Streetcar" line, which will enter service at the end of 2013, will be 3.9 miles long and will feature 18 stops. RATP Dev will be in charge of line operation and maintenance as well as the preparatory phase for operations.

The contract, which is for three years with options to increase it to eight years, consolidates the RATP Dev strategy for its future in the USA where it intends to continue expanding in transit, paratransit, regular inter-urban lines and charter fields as well as tramways and light rail systems.
