Phoenix Valley Metro Rail ordered 11 new S70 light rail vehicles (LRV) from Siemens, which includes an option for up to 67 additional vehicles.

The new vehicles offer a larger interior, energy-efficient LED lighting, and heavy-duty air conditioning systems, and will be built at Siemens' manufacturing plant in Sacramento, Calif.

"Investment in transit is a major contributor to powering this nation's ongoing economic growth, both locally and across the country," said Valley Metro Rail Chair, Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell. "We look forward to successful collaboration and partnership with Siemens who plays a critical role in the expansion of our Valley's light rail system."
