METRO ISTANBUL FULLY AUTOMATED METRO

CAF supplies the new metro units for the city of Istanbul. These are 6-car trains equipped with an automatic driving system. This driverless system provides maximum safety whilst optimising maintenance costs and service life. It also provides higher transport capacity given the more frequent train service.

The new units will run on the UU line on the Turkish city's metro system. CAF previously supplied 36 metro units which run on the Kadikoy-Kartal line on the Asian side of the city.

With more than 12 million inhabitants, the city of Istanbul opened its first metropolitan transport system line in 2000.
