FY 2008 Portland Oregon Streetcar

TriMet will purchase and deploy a domestically manufactured streetcar in Portland, Oregon. The project includes selection of the manufacturer, car manufacturing, testing, acceptance and reliability evaluation for a period of two years on the Portland Streetcar system. The project will enable a U.S.-owned manufacturer, through building and testing a single modern streetcar, to gain experience in the business of manufacturing modern streetcars and develop the ability to competitively sell domestically manufactured vehicles to U.S. cities planning modern streetcar systems. The vehicle must meet or exceed Federal Buy America requirements and be compatible with the existing Portland Streetcar operation.
