USA: Siemens has been selected as the long-term service provider for the Atlanta Streetcar. The partnership will see Siemens providing technical support and materials for all preventative and corrective maintenance of the four Avanto vehicles that it supplied for the route.

Siemens will use its Railigent platform to analyse data collected through sensors to identify components at risk of failure. Dedicated Siemens staff will be placed on-site.

The agreement also deepens co-operation between MARTA, which operates the Streetcar, and Siemens’ data and analytics hub on the Georgia Tech University campus is central Atlanta.
