Jerusalem‘s Green Line Tram powered by TSA Motors
Jerusalem Transportation Masterplan Team (JTMT), the public transport agency in Israel‘s capital, has selected CAF to deliver 114 new low-floor Urbos trams which will be equipped with traction motors by TSA from Austria.
With more than 1,400 motors, Traktionssysteme Austria was awarded to deliver the highest number of Urbos motors in an individual order.
Jerusalem inaugurated it‘s first tram route (Red Line) in 2011. The new Green Line is estimated to transport up to 200,000 passengers per day along a route of 20.6 km with 53 stops.
The genuine motor design has already been used for tram projects worldwide (Oslo, Luxemburg and Canberra) and has proven its reliability. The new vehicles are expected to enter service in 2025.
