CAF will supply the new trams for the Canberra City. CAF is member of the Canberra Metro Consortium entrusted with the design, construction, maintenance and operation of the new tram line for a term of 20 years. This line will be 12 kilometres long and have 13 stops to link the area of Gungahlin with the centre of the Australian capital.

Vehicles are made of 5 modules based on the Urbos platform. These are 100% low floor bidirectional vehicles providing easy access and moving inside the tram for all users. The units are designed for the eventual retrofit of an on-board energy storage system which enables catenary-free running between stations.

This project adds to other tram projects made by CAF for Sidney which are currently providing revenue service on the Inner West Tram.

The new contract entered into in 2022 is further testament to the customer’s trust placed in CAF. This contract includes upgrading of the previously delivered fleet, fitting it out with the OESS accumulation system. The upgrade equipment is similar to that fitted on the new LRVs, and will permit catenary-free operation for the entire fleet of vehicles on the city's light rail line.
