Bombardier Transportation, together with its Chinese joint venture Changchun Bombardier Railway Vehicles Company Ltd. (CBRC), celebrated the opening of passenger services on the remaining 16 stations on Shanghai line 12 with the customer, Shanghai Rail Transit Line 12 Development Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Shanghai Shentong Metro Group Co.

With the new Bombardier Movia metro trains introduced into passenger service on Dec. 21, Bombardier has now delivered all 246 Movia metro cars (41 trains) for the Shanghai line 12.

The 25-mile underground Shanghai line 12 with 32 stations passes through the city center from the South-West to North-South direction in the Pudong New Area with up to 19 available interchanges for passengers covering eight districts of the city. The first section, from Tiantong Road to Jinhai Road, opened on Dec. 29, 2013, followed by the extension to Qufu Road on May 10, 2014.

Bombardier Movia metros are high-tech, high capacity trains. They deliver rapid, reliable and cost-effective transport for more than seven billion passenger trips globally every year in major cities including Montréal, Berlin, London and New Delhi, according to the company.

In addition, a fully-automated, driverless version of the Movia metro is in operation in Singapore. Bombardier has sold more than 4,000 Movia metro cars to date. They travel an average of 75,000 miles per year. The high capacity vehicles are environmentally friendly through the use of Bombardier Mitrac propulsion technology with low energy consumption and optimized electro-dynamic braking performance.
