This retrofit was the first install of a LED interior lighting system on a light rail passenger vehicle in North America. Over 2,700 tubes have been installed in Calgary Transit since the inception of the project. The initial lights have been on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week since installed for a total run time of over 24,000 hours as of August, 2011. Over the past 3 years, with annual testing performed, resulted in only a 5% reduction in lumens and .007% defective rate. All new SD-160 cars supplied by Siemens to Calgary Transit are fitted with LED Smarts LED rail series tube lighting.
