The State of California and Stadler signed an agreement for six additional hydrogen trains. The trains are contract options the state is exercising under a contract signed in October 2023, and will expand the fleet total to 10.

With this contract award and the other successes in the US, Germany, Italy, Austria, and Lithuania, Stadler once again confirms its position in alternative and ecological drive systems with batteries and hydrogen as over 150 trains with battery or hydrogen drives have been sold to date.

The Addition of More Hydrogen Trains

After announcing the order of four four-car hydrogen-powered rail vehicles for the state of California last fall, Stadler will now deliver six additional state-of-the-art hydrogen-powered trains to the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) and Caltrans. The original contract includes an option to purchase up to 25 trains.

"We are very proud to be providing additional hydrogen trains to CalSTA and Caltrans,” said Martin Ritter, CEO Stadler US. “With our multiple units, we are jointly driving the decarbonization of rail transportation in the US. We thank CalSTA and Caltrans for their trust and look forward to deepening our partnership."

Stadler's hydrogen train has been extensively tested in both Switzerland and the U.S., proving its exceptional performance and reliability. The SBCTA FLIRT H2 is performing well in pre-revenue testing, showing that Stadler has designed a quality product that is fulfilling the needs of our clients.
