Servicio de Transportes Eléctricos del Distrito Federal (STE) (Spanish for Electric Transport Service of the Federal District) is a public transport agency responsible for the operation of all trolleybus and light rail services in Mexico City. As its name implies, its routes use only electrically powered vehicles. It was created on 31 December 1946 and is owned by the Mexican Federal District government. STE is overseen by a broader Federal District authority, Secretaría de Transportes y Vialidad (STV, or Setravi) (Secretariat of Transportation and Highways), which also regulates the city's other public transport authorities, including Sistema de Transporte Colectivo (STC, the Mexico City Metro system), Red de Transporte de Pasajeros del Distrito Federal (RTP, diesel bus network) and Metrobús, as well as other forms of transportation in the district. STE's passenger vehicle fleet consists exclusively of trolleybuses and light rail vehicles, and in 2007 its network carried 88 million passengers, of which 67 million were on trolleybus services and 21 million on light rail.

  • The roughly 100 straight buses remaining (minus the 67 conversions, two splice-jobs, and 4001, which was preserved with that number) were renumbered 6002 thru 6169, keeping the same last three original digits.
  • Circa 1993, the 16 remaining artics were sold to Gualdaljara as numbers 1203-1218.
