BOMBARDIER INNOVIA ART - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Built to a fast-track schedule by the Bombardier Consortium, the Kelana Jaya Line entered service in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur in time for the 1998 Commonwealth Games. The 29-kilometre (18-mile) INNOVIA ART 200 advanced rapid transit system links the western and eastern suburbs with Kuala Lumpur's downtown core.
Seventy INNOVIA ART 200 vehicles, designed and manufactured by Bombardier Transportation, provide service to 24 stations of mostly elevated dual-lane guideway. The Bombardier Consortium supplied all of the electrical and mechanical equipment, vehicles and services related to the implementation of the INNOVIA ART 200 system. With an initial capacity of 10,000 passengers per hour per direction (pphpd), the system was designed to accommodate up to 30,000 pphpd as the need arose. Recent orders for 140 INNOVIA ART 200 vehicles brings the total fleet to 210 vehicles.
