Hyundai Rotem Wins $664M LA Metro Order
Posted on 11th February 2024 at 16:30
The $663.7m contract includes the provision for a follow-on order of 50 cars at a currently unspecified cost.
Hyundai Rotem will deliver two-car trains, each with a capacity of 245 passengers. They will operate on LA Metro’s B (Red) Line, which runs for 16.4 miles between downtown LA and northern Hollywood, and the D (Purple) Line, which runs between downtown LA and Koreatown (6.4 miles).
Last summer, LACMTA took delivery of the first of a new fleet of HR4000 trains ordered from CRRC in December 2016 and assembled at the Chinese supplier’s plant in Springfield, Mass. The 64 cars, which arrived significantly later than expected, could finally enter service later this year, also on the B and D lines.
“Based on the experience and capabilities we have accumulated while carrying out numerous local projects in the United States, we will do our best to deliver electric trains that will satisfy both local citizens and tourists,” a spokesperson for Hyundai Rotem said.
