Pittsburgh Transit Cars to be Rebuilt

Light rail transit vehicles in Pittsburgh will be rebuilt during a two year project that will cost $2 million.

The Port Authority of Allegheny County, which operates the light rail network, said the work will begin in the fall and affect 55 Siemens-built cars.

The work, which will take two years to complete, is expected to extend the life of the cars by six years

Some of the cars being rebuilt were delivered in the middle 1980s when the light-rail system opened.

Twenty-eight cars built by CAF will be evaluated. Those cars, acquired in the early 2000s, were already due for a mid-life upgrade.
