The new coaches will enable ISR to operate eight-car trains on its routes, providing a capacity of over 1200 extra seats.

In addition, the contract includes an option to order further double-decker coaches in the future to allow train sets consisting of 10 coaches to operate.

This order is part of ISR’s initiative to switch solely to double-decker trains to meet increased ridership demands. To do so, the company is acquiring new coaches from both Alstom and Siemens Mobility.
