Stadler Rail GTW DMU Train Set

The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) has awarded a contract to Stadler Rail for the supply of 8 GTW-trains. The order is valued at USD $58 million. The diesel multiple units (2/6 articulated power units) are based on the 37 trains that Stadler has delivered to Texas (Austin and Dallas region) and New Jersey in the last few years. The units will be produced at the Stadler factory in Bussnang Switzerland.

On April 24, 2014, the BART Board of Directors voted to award a contract to supply eight DMU GTW 2/6s. BART has embarked on a project to extend BART service to East Contra Costa County using diesel multiple unit (DMU) rail vehicles. The East Contra Costa BART Extension Project (eBART Project) will be comprised of approximately 9.5 miles of new track between the existing Pittsburg/Bay Point BART Station and a new station in the City of Antioch.

The eBART Project will use independently propelled DMU vehicles that will operate on a standard gauge rail to be constructed and owned by the District. The guideway will be located in the median of State Route 4 on a right-of-way for the exclusive use of eBART.
