FORTALEZA | Public Transport

After waiting long decades, at last metro is now opened in Fortaleza. I must say that rolling stocks are really modern and state of the art. I’m personally fond of the stocks because of green colour, which is favourite of me.

After Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre & Recife, Fortaleza is the fourth Brazilian city which has opened metro after converting from suburban rail. Although there is only one line now, but another is under construction (conversion?) and another is planned.

Here is a map.



There is a photo




More photos are most welcome.

Great news, nice trains.

But there is a planned "diesel light rail"? Do diesel engines make sense for real light rails? Are there even existing diesel powered light rails out there?

Light rails run at relatively modest speeds and need a lot of acceleration, deceleration. Electric motors excel at these things while diesel motors don't. Even if it might be a bit cheaper to build it is most likely more expensive to run and comes with diesel related limitations in service.

Yes, diesel light rail is a completely wrong idea. It will continue to increase air pollution.

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –

1) Left side, right side or both sides, - which type of platforms are in most numbers in Fortaleza subway network?
2) Elevated, overground or underground - which type of stations are in most numbers in Fortaleza subway network?
3) Which is the highest & deepest station of Fortaleza metro?
4) Which is the busiest metro station?
5) Where is/are the depot(s) of the subway network?
6) When the construction of metro becan, was the remaining of closed tram network discovered under the road?

The planned diesel light rail seems odd, why not electric?

I also don't know why Fortaleza planned such foolish system - diesel light rail. Where in present age air pollution is a burning problem, it will increase such problem.

I personally like this metro cars more, because green is my favourite colour.

It's just cheaper and the line uses an old open air railroad alignment already served by diesel trains for decades.

New tender for Fortaleza light rail project
Wednesday, November 19, 2014



THE government of the Brazilian state of Ceará says it will launch a new tender on December 10 for a contract to complete construction of the Reais 265.5m ($US 102.7m) Parangaba – Mururipe LRT line in Fortaleza

Construction on the 12.7km line was suspended in June and while the work is around 50% complete no date is being given for the start of operations. The line was originally due to open in time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which was hosted by Brazil.

The diesel-operated line will have eight stations and is expected to carry around 90,000 passengers per day. Services will be operated by a fleet of six diesel LRVs supplied by Bom Sinal, Brazil

Once there was a tram service also in Fortaleza. I couldn't found any photograph, but there is a map of the now closed tram. It was closed in 1947, that year my country India became independent.

Thanks to World Cup Football 2014, this was hosted in Brazil. So many metro systems got new lines, and alsos new mystems has opened. One of the two is Fortaleza metro.

Although currently only South line is opened, but the rolling stocks are very soothing green. Green is my favourite.

I heard East line will be a brand new metro line (unlike South line, which is converted from suburban rail line). But the West line will also be converted from suburban rail line like South line. Feeling is mixed.
