A total of sixty Citadis X05 vehicles will run on the new light rail system.
Each tram set can carry up to 450 people, uses four times less energy than an average bus and 10 times less energy than a car.
The CBD and South East Light Rail will provide reliable, high frequency ‘turn up and go’ transport services from Circular Quay and the CBD, to Randwick and Kingsford via Surry Hills, Moore Park and Kensington by early 2019.
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said Sydney was the first city in the world to receive the Citadis X05 vehicle.
“I am pleased to note they are fully accessible with low-floors, double doors, dedicated areas for wheelchairs and prams and low-level on-board passenger intercoms,” Mr Constance said.
“The next step will be to begin testing the vehicles along part of the track later in the year, ahead of services starting operation in 2019.”
