Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation has delivered its first BOMBARDIER MOVIA C30 metro trainsets to Swedish operator, Stockholm Public Transport (SL). The new metros are destined for the Red line on the Stockholm metro system, where they will enhance the passenger experience and reduce energy consumption.
Sweden is investing heavily in sustainable mobility solutions and its capital city, Stockholm, is one of the fastest growing metropolitan regions in Europe as it is such an appealing place to live. The metro system is the backbone of the capital’s transport network carrying more than one million passengers per day in normal operations (before COVID-19). Investment in the metro network is focused on increasing capacity, and includes line extensions, new stations and the addition of new modern comfortable trains. The MOVIA C30 metro trainsets will progressively replace existing older trains on the Red line, which connects the north-eastern and south-western suburbs directly with the city centre.
