First Light Rail Line in Argentinean City of Mendoza

The Argentinean city of Mendoza began full commercial services of it’s first light rail line today – The Green Line.

Siemens-Duewag U2 Trams

The track runs along a former heavy-rail line between Mendoza Station and General Gutierrez in the suburb of Maipu, totalling 12.5km. Along the line are 15 stations with services operated by a fleet of 11 Siemens-Duewag U2 trams. The trams were built in the 1980’s and were acquired from the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System who are phasing out the trams in favour of new Siemens S70 LRV’s.

The official inauguration of the Green Line took place in February this year but frequencies have gradually increased in the run-up to the launch of the full 10-minute interval service. The north of the line is due to be extended to Panquehua before the end of the year with more U2 trams being acquired  from San Diego to help with the expansion of the network.
