Tempe Streetcar

Tempe Streetcar

CTE has been commissioned by the City of Tempe to investigate battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell technologies that can allow a streetcar to operate “off-wire” (without the traditional over- head catenary system) on a three-mile route planned through downtown Tempe, AZ. The study includes vehicle performance modeling and simulation, operations and capital cost estimates, and RFP development and response evaluation.
