The fleet will be used on the city’s Gold line, Line No.4, when it enters operations in March 2010. The vehicle forms part of the $160m 84-unit contract awarded by the line’s concessionaire ViaQuatro.
The unmanned trains will run with six units in one car and are equipped with the company’s main electric and propulsion devices.
