Job Description:

Siemens Rolling Stock - Urban Transport Business

Siemens is the market leader in light rail vehicles (LRV) in North America, having built more than 1000 rail vehicles for 17 cities in the US and Canada. One out of every three light rail vehicles in North America is a Siemens vehicle.

Siemens innovation provided the first low-floor light-rail vehicles to the United States when it delivered Portland’s 70 percent low-floor LRV in 1998. The low-floor design enhances operational efficiency and accommodates those with impaired mobility. Meanwhile, Venezuela’s Metro Valencia was the company’s first export contract with twelve vehicles operating on the new transit system. In January 2004, Siemens unveiled the first fully operational S70 low-floor light-rail vehicle. In 2013, Siemens introduced the new S200 high-floor light rail vehicle – a hybrid creation combining industry leading innovations with the best elements from both of our successful SD160 high-floor and S70 low-floor light rail platforms.
