Buenos Aires Metro Line B

Line B, in operation since 1930, is about 10 km long and includes 18 stations. This project will increase the line’s capacity, benefiting the 250,000 passengers that use the service daily. Alstom already provided signalling systems for Line B in 2005 with an extension in 2013.

Michel Boccaccio, Senior Vice-President of Alstom in Latin America, said:

“Alstom is proud to have been awarded this first infrastructure project for Buenos Aires metro. With this project, Alstom confirms its long-time partnership with SBASE, providing efficient and reliable solutions that contribute to the efficiency and quality of the service offered to the population of Buenos Aires”

Alstom has been present in Argentina since 1993 providing signalling systems for Buenos Aires metro, maintenance and modernisation of existing metro and suburban trains. Alstom is also currently delivering 120 cars for lines D & H which will give additional comfort to the passengers commuting every day.
