August 3, 2018

Siemens has secured a contract from Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) to supply eight S70 streetcars, with an option to supply 10 additional cars. The company will also supply spare parts and tools to OCTA. Once the cars are delivered, Siemens will provide system support and training to operators and maintenance technicians.


The zero-emission streetcars will be deployed on Santa Ana’s central business district (CBD) area, connecting local and county government offices and courthouses. Average daily ridership is estimated at 73,000 passengers.
