Brookville Sends Streetcar to Tempe

Pennsylvania-based Brookville Equipment Corporation said it has delivered the first of six Liberty® NXT Streetcar vehicles to Valley Metro for its Tempe Streetcar system in the Phoenix metropolitan area

The 72-foot-long vehicles were delivered as part of a $33 million contract for the design, build and test of the streetcars for the three-mile system, which is slated to open this year.

The streetcars use a lithium-ion battery onboard energy storage system while traveling sections track segments without an overhead catenary system.

The batteries recharge while connected to the overhead wire.
