Alstom Spain to supply eight new trains for Santo Domingo Metro

(28/09/2021) 


These new trainsets will join the 25 Metropolis trains that Alstom previously supplied for Line 1 and the 21 trains supplied for Line 2, for a total of 138 cars manufactured in Santa Perpetua. All of them will be able to operate in multiple units. The expansion of the fleet will allow capacity to be adapted to demand, with 6-car configurations at peak times and 3-car configurations at off-peak times.

The new trains will have the same features, functionalities and characteristics of those that currently operate in the Santo Domingo Metro, such as wide doors, wide corridors and a low floor. In addition, the new trainsets will include LED lighting, Wi-Fi connection for the uploading of multimedia files and data transmission to the control unit, as well as improvements in the passenger information and alert system, train control and self-diagnosis systems.
