Final Porto Alegre Metropolis delivered
Friday, January 09, 2015



TRENSURB, the metro operator in the Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, has taken delivery of the last of 15 four-car Metropolis EMUs being supplied by the FrotaPoa consortium of Alstom and CAF Brazil under a contract signed in 2012

The 1600mm-gauge trains have been acquired to increase capacity on the 33.8km north-south Line 1 from Nuevo Hamburgo to Mercado.

The Reais 243.8m ($US 90.9m) order was financed by Brazil's federal government as part of its Growth Acceleration Programme (PAC).

The vehicles were assembled at Alstom's Lapa plant in São Paulo state

The map ins´t openning here... Nice initiative, though, congrats...
By-the-way, Porto Alegre is supposed to have its second metro line soon... It seems the Government has approved all resources needed to start the bidding process.

There were the last Japanese urban trains purchased for a Brazilian railway system.

All trainsets are in operation.

Porto Alegre has a "jitney" system called LOTAÇÃO. There are mini-buses that operates lines between Downtown and some villages, with a special fare and comfortable seats.

It is a system very similar to Hong Kong light buses.







These buses accept TRI card.
