The Greater Cleveland RTA (GCRTA) will be replacing their Red Line fleet with Siemens Mobility's S200 Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs).
GCRTA’s current heavy and light-rail fleets are 39 and 42 years old. Delivery of the new S200 LRVs is scheduled to be completed in four years.
The new high floor vehicles will feature two door heights for high- and low-level platform accessibility, allowing the trains to operate on both the Red Line and the Blue and Green Line tracks.
The base order will serve the Red Line and as modifications to the existing platforms on the Blue and Green Lines are made, additional options may be exercised.
GCRTA General Manager and CEO India L. Birdsong Terry, said:
“These new LRVs are catalytic for the health and economics of Greater Cleveland. They will promote increased ridership and encourage transit-oriented development along the Red Line communities from East Cleveland to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport,”
