CAF is the supplier for the new automatic Metro units for the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) line managed by Transport for London (TfL).

The new units are made up of 5 cars and belong to the CAF’s Inneo metro platform. The trains are equipped with the most advanced technology as regards sound and visual information for passengers, in addition to air-conditioning, mobile device charging points and areas for pushchairs, bicycles and baggage. To guarantee maximum accessibility to users, the vehicle has spaces reserved for wheelchairs.

The new trains are equipped with a signalling system that allows operation in Grade of Automation 3 (GoA3) and driverless operation (with train guard) in fully automatic mode. Furthermore, the equipment can be updated to operate in GoA4 (fully unattended train operation). This system provides the maximum levels of reliability and safety.
