SFMTA is carrying out the first major upgrades to its fleet since the 1990s. The train company plans to have 68 new LRVs up and running by the end of 2018 and will replace all its current trains by the new vehicles by 2028. The new
trains are fitted with Televic’s information system, including screens, audio systems and content management software.
Televic’s software in Silicon Valley
Televic Rail provides the custom IP network, information screens, the audio communication system and the necessary software for content management and connectivity. The advanced software of Televic Rail really makes the difference. Lieven Danneels, CEO of Televic, is very proud of the project: “Silicon Valley - the Mecca of high technology - chooses our software. This shows how well we know the market. Our experience in Europe and Asia is an added value, even in one of the most developed regions in the world."
68 new trains by the end of 2018
The order is one of the biggest ever placed in the USA for light rail cars. Siemens was selected as train builder, one of Televic Rail’s largest customers worldwide. The trains will be built at the Siemens factory in Sacramento, California. SFMTA plans to have 68 new trains up and running by the end of 2018. By 2028 the agency will replace and expand its entire fleet.
