Alstom completes commuter train order for SuperVia

Listen to this article

Rail operator SuperVia has received the last of 10 Metropolis trains ordered from Alstom.

SuperVia ordered the new eight-car units in 2012, with the first train entering service in February this year.

In the same year that it placed the order with Alstom, SuperVia purchased 60 new electric multiple units (EMUs) from Chinese manufacturer CNR Changchun.

Michel Boccaccio, senior vice president of Alstom Transport in Latin America said: “With the completion of this project, we reiterate our commitment to the development of urban mobility in the country and to the quality of our services.

“The first train was delivered only 13 months after signing the agreement, which is a record for Alstom’s Lapa unit.”
