Bombardier Transportation and the Stockholm Traffic Administration have unveiled the design of the new C30 Movia metro for the Swedish capital’s Red line. In June 2013, Bombardier secured a SEK5.1bn ($771m) order from Stockholm public transport body StorstockholmsLokaltrafik (SL) to supply 96 Movia trains to the Stockholm metro. The new metro trains are expected to increase Stockholm’s transport capacity and comfort by transporting around 60,000 passengers per hour.
The new trains feature additional bi-parting doors for faster entry and exit, and a mixed, four-by-four seating configuration with extra seats along the vehicle’s sides to provide better comfort, capacity and passenger flow. Additionally, the trains deliver facilities for persons with reduced mobility, as well as providing extra room for those travelling with wheelchairs, baby carriages or extra-large luggage.
