Bombardier Transportation and its team of mobility technology experts will be participating in the 2019 SmartMetro and CBTC World Congress in Madrid, on November 25-27, 2019.
For years, Bombardier has been a long-term partner to the SmartMetro Congress, one of the rail industry’s top global meeting places for the mass transit rail control community. During the event, Bombardier will highlight its deep experience in communication-based train control (CBTC) and how its latest digitalisation and automation developments are enhancing sustainable urban mobility across the globe. Celebrating its 10th year anniversary, this year’s forum is unique as it is being supported by Madrid´s local transport operator, Metro de Madrid.
“Bombardier, through its CBTC Centre of Competence in Madrid, has a long-established and successful relationship with Metro Madrid, recently deepened by the project to upgrade the signalling on Madrid’s metro Lines 1 and 6, with the advanced BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 moving block CBTC solution.” explains David Torres, Head of Rail Control Solutions Sales and Marketing, Region South, Bombardier Transportation.
This ambitious project reduced headways and increased capacity on both lines and was completed without a single second of lost revenue or disrupted passenger service.
