CITYFLO 650 - Madrid, Spain

The Metro de Madrid network is one of the largest and busiest in Europe, transporting over 600 million passengers a year, with an average of 2.5 million passengers a day. The re-signalling project awarded to Bombardier was for the installation of the CITYFLO 650 CBTC system, to be implemented as an overlay and with the condition that there would be no interruption to passenger service.  This well proven CBTC solution was perfectly suited to the heavy rail transport system yet offered the required flexibility.
