The new C30 MOVIA has been designed to sharply increase the Stockholm’s transport capacity and comfort. As one of Europe’s most rapidly growing cities, Stockholm has invest heavily to make sure that the C30 MOVIA meets the standard it needs. This new design will includes new features such as bi-parting doors for faster entry and exit, four-by-four seating arrangement with additional seats along the side to optimise comfort, capacity and passenger flow.

The new metro fleet also represents extensive dialogue with representatives of various groups. The number of designated priority zones has been increased to eight, to ensure plenty of room for persons with reduced mobility as well as providing extra room for those travelling with wheelchairs, baby carriages and extra-large luggage.

With this metro design, Stockholm has taken this motto to an entirely new level to the benefit of both commuters and the city as a whole for many years to come.
