The new trains are part of the package of improvements and obligations taken on by the concessionaire that recently acquired the responsibility to operate and maintain both metropolitan train lines for 30 years.

This new Metropolis fleet is made up of the same model as the 9000 Series trains that Companhia Paulista de Trens Metropolitano (CPTM) currently operates on lines 12 and 13 and will operate with Alstom's Automatic Train Control (ATC) solution. Made of stainless steel, one of the main advantages is their durability: the car body shells last more than 40 years and are lighter compared to carbon steel models. In addition, they consume less energy and, consequently, are more energy efficient. Each train can carry 2,600 passengers.

The trains will have doors and corridors that offer excellent passenger exchange and freedom of movement, in addition to spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility. Large windows and doors will provide a clear view of the outside, ensuring passengers have a smooth, safe, and comfortable journey. The trains will also feature modern technologies: passenger counting, dynamic line maps, monitors and video surveillance, as well as fire detection and extinguishing systems.

“We are immensely pleased that ViaMobilidade has chosen Alstom to manufacture the new trains for Lines 8 and 9, supporting the State Government’s plans to provide safe, reliable and efficient public transit for passengers in São Paolo.”
Pierre Bercaire - Managing Director of Alstom Brazil

“We are immensely pleased that ViaMobilidade has chosen Alstom to manufacture the new trains for Lines 8 and 9, supporting the State Government’s plans to provide safe, reliable and efficient public transit for passengers in São Paolo. This reinforces Alstom’s position as a truly global mobility provider with innovative solutions that are calibrated for each customer's needs,” says Pierre Bercaire, Managing Director of Alstom Brazil.

Metropolitan trains lines 8 and 9 transport more than one million passengers a day, according to data pre-coronavirus pandemic. Line 8, which connects Júlio Prestes to Amador Bueno, is 41.6 kilometers long and has 22 stations, serving the municipalities of São Paulo, Osasco, Carapicuíba, Barueri, Jandira and Itapevi. Line 9 connects Osasco to Grajaú, running 32 kilometers with 18 stations, serving the cities of São Paulo and Osasco.

Produced at Alstom's industrial unit in Taubaté in the state of São Paulo, Alstom will in invest in a new production line that will double the plant's capacity and will contribute to the creation of more than 500 direct jobs. In addition to producing the Metropolis cars for Sao Paulo, the Taubaté plant will also produce Metropolis cars for Bucharest, Romania, and Taipei, Taiwan.

With a flexibility that offers a wide range of possible configurations, Alstom’s Metropolis range of trains has been in operation for over 20 years worldwide. Over 30 cities have ordered or are operating Metropolis trains, including Amsterdam, Singapore, Panama City, Barcelona, Paris, Riyadh, Dubai, Sydney, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro and Santiago.
