Siemens to Build New Muni LRVs -- September 13, 2014

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved a $1.2 billion contract with Siemens Industry, Inc to build Muni's third generation of LRVs.  Siemens will assemble the S200 cars in its Sacramento plant.  These will be high floor cars with movable steps, like the Boeing and Breda LRVs.  Muni should receive the prototype in in December, 2016. 

They won't look like the car in this photo.
