Built in Chicago
CRRC Sifang is proud to partner with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to bring railcar assembly back to Chicago.
CRRC Sifang will build up to 846 new CTA railcars in a brand new facility on Chicago’s south side. CRRC’s commitment to the city of Chicago amounts to a $100 million investment and more than 160 new jobs.
