As part of the contract signed in December 2014, Alstom is currently supplying to Secretaria de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) the electro-mechanical systems for Guadalajara metro Line 3, including 18 Metropolis trains.  Line 3 is operated by the Sistema de Tren Electrico Urbano (SITEUR) and is 20.9 km long. The metro will run along Zapopan, Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque (Diagonal Corridor Guadalajara) and will transport around 230,000 passengers daily, in a fast, comfortable and safe way.

Alstom will also supply a state-of-the-art CBTC control system, which offers the highest safety standards for the automatic drive and communication systems.

Made up of three coaches each, these Metropolis metro trains are equipped with air conditioning, video surveillance and passenger information systems. They also offer improved access for disabled people. Metropolis for Guadalajara has reached the highest standards in the environmental field. The energy consumption is reduced thanks to the train’s light weight, the optimisation of the traction performance and the energy recovery.
