THE first LRV for the Oklahoma City Streetcar project arrived in the city on February 13 after completing its four-day 1900km road journey from Brookville, Pennsylvania.

Brookville Equipment Corporation is supplying seven bi-directional Liberty LRVs, which are equipped with batteries for catenary-free operation. Each three-section vehicle will accommodate 104 passengers.

The $US 131m network is due to open in December and will comprise two loop lines. Line 1 will be a 7.8km north-south loop connecting Bricktown and the business district with Automobile Alley and St Anthony Hospital Campus. Line 2 will form a 3.3km east-west loop linking Bricktown with Chesapeake Energy Arena and Cox Convention Center.

The network will be operated by Herzog Transit Services under six-year contract awarded in June 2017.
