Looks great! Makes lots of sense to renew the NS 93 with the current livery and add in A/C. Makes me wonder now about if Paris will renew their MP 89. Their stock is in limbo due to planned automation of some lines.

This is a translation of what is said in the video. Made by members of the Chilean forum (Malulin, and |WTKI|) It contains useful information, hope you read it.

Quote:
In Santiago Chile more than seven million people travel in different directions. Just like other world capitals at sunrise the city bustles at an accelerated pace. Underneath its surface Metro de Santiago labors to better the quality of life of its inhabitants by designing a unique travel experience for millions of people. Welcome aboard, welcome to Metro de Santiago. Enjoy the trip.

Metro is the preferred method of travel for the citizens of Santiago being the structural axis of the city’s public transportation system. Each day there are 2.4 million trips made within its network. In 1975 the first train departed on a short route along Alameda the city’s main avenue. Today Metro has turned into a vast underground network that connects the capital and its inhabitants. With 5 Lines, 108 Stations, 103 Kms in length along with a huge network of services, Metro de Santiago is one of the most extensive in Latin America and during these last few years it has grown at a rapid pace and it continues to expand. Metro is currently is the midst of the most ambitious project of its existence: A simultaneous construction of two new lines which will add 37 kilometers and 28 stations to the network. The new lines, 3 and 6 will be of the highest international standards: A world-class subway system for its passengers.

The new lines mean a US$ 2,700m investment. Thanks to its successful financial management and the issue of vouchers, Metro de Santiago will fund a third of the investment as well as finance the transaction by itself. The good results are due to its powerful business model and the non-pricing incomes, among others.

Metro is a pioneer in implementing a service strategy that focus the decision making on the users, defining a new travel experience: around 3,500 people and more than 5,000 outsourced personnel work oriented by its service pillars. Open channels of communication with our customers allow us to understand and respond in the best way to their needs. Plus, we give them more tools, so they have more control over their travel. We have developed several initiatives, such as an app to smartphones, information screens, social networks, costumer service offices, call center and an emergency phone number, among others. Dissemination of preventive and educational campaigns, promoting habits and guide the passengers on the network. Our personnel is trained to provide a comprehensive and top-class service to our costumers. More than 1,000 security cameras and the same number of security guards have become Metro into one of the safest public spaces of the city, so the passengers travel more safe and calm.

An efficient operation is one of Metro de Santiago competitive advantages. The operational results rank it among the most regular trains in the world and among which hold the higher standards of maintenance. Some of the operational innovations to improve our service are: increased supply specially at rush hour, purchase of new air-conditioning provided trains, control and redirection of flows, platform extensions and fleet redistribution, implementation of a Commercial Code of Practices on Line 1, information and interest points in all our stations, modernization of older trains and full accessibility.

Chile publishes $US 4.2bn urban transport plan
Monday, November 10, 2014



THE Chilean government has announced a $US 4.2bn urban public transport investment plan, of which some 45% is slated to be financed by concessionaires

The plan is focused on the capital of Santiago, to which over 70% of the funds are destined, but also covers the country's largest regional cities.

The total amount to be invested is, however, a headline figure, since feasibility studies are yet to be carried out for many of the projects, including the proposed seventh line of the Santiago metro. Although the prime aim of the plan is to improve the functioning of Chilean cities, there is a secondary, macroeconomic, goal: to help revive Chile's flagging economy, where GDP growth has dropped from its customary 5% per year to just 2%

Lines 1, 2 and 5 use rubber-tire trains, and Lines 4 and 4A use steel wheels in order to increase capacity. How is using steel wheels going to increase a train's capacity compared to when a train uses rubber tires?

Under construction line 6, Station National Stadium

Hace un tiempo viendo el video de la presentación de Metro en Medellín, me llamaron la atención ciertas diapositivas usadas por la información que contenían:


Nuevos trenes?



Cambiaron el diseño o el presentado por CAF primero (y que todos conocemos) era sólo una referencia?




Detalles de estaciones



Se nota la intención de que la luz natural "bañe" lo más posible el interior de la estación.





Arquitectura media retro (hormigón) combinada con tecnología high tech para información y publicidad? Me agrada, y mucho.




Esto no sé si me gustó mucho, es un simple render lo sé, pero para qué joder la simpleza y limpieza del resto de la estación con estos colores chillones? Quizás en vivo cambie y se vea mejor.



Puertas en el andén, enteras?


Hace un tiempo se discutió acá mismo que se habían licitado puertas de andén de media altura, y que no cubrían a una persona entera. Habrán cambiado el diseño? Mejor ésta alternativa que la otra, de todas maneras.


Saludos
New Trains

Hopefully your punishment is harder than the german one (only money if at all). Do the Singapore-thing with them, please.

It´s crazy. In Berlin sprayers often get killed by trains in the tunnel just because of thrillseeking in the dark. Tourists are often killed, surfing at trains. It´s because of drug-abuse. We call them Pillen-Spanier, because they take drugs which are hard to get in Spain. A sad waste of human life.

Kind regards

Each one of the three germans had to pay 200,000 CLP (aproximately 288 USD) and they all had 72 hours to leave the country or else they would be deported. That's it.
