If you’ve ever commuted from Daybreak to Rice Eccles Stadium, or from Draper to the Salt Lake City International Airport, you know how convenient (and important) light rail is for the interconnectivity of Salt Lake City’s biggest suburbs. But did you know those light rail vehicles (LRVs) were built right here in the USA?

Manufacturing transit solutions in the United States for more than 30 years, Siemens is proud to provide more than 3,000 rail vehicles to 40 cities across North America. Built to improve interconnectivity, cut down on commute times, and offer a sustainable transit alternative to congested roadways, transit solutions from Siemens offer a modern, comfortable, and more sustainable way for cities to help residents get from point A to B. And with nearly half a billion riders on Siemens rolling stock annually, and more than 100,000 data points remotely monitored on Siemens rail infrastructure in America, the company is connecting communities coast to coast and offering seamless transportation solutions to transform the everyday.

A Trusted Partner in North America

With the success of light rail in cities like Portland, Salt Lake City, San Diego and Seattle, this connectivity wouldn’t be possible without the vehicles themselves, which were all built by Siemens, a technology company focused on train services and a leader in the U.S. light rail market. Providing 1 out of every 3 LRVs in the country, Siemens has spent the last four decades providing passengers with the best possible experience – including transporting passengers to Super Bowls and Olympic Games.

In addition to decades of trusted transit partnerships, Siemens has committed itself to providing top-class building technology systems, and facility and infrastructure upgrades to cities across the country. Siemens’ rail crossing and infrastructure work throughout the region has also been instrumental in supporting freight rail operations – keeping both goods and people moving across North America.
