The line goes through the three Mexican cities of Zapopan, Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque and will transport about 230,000 passengers each day. With 18 stations, 21 kilometers will be covered. The project represents a nearly $400 million investment.
“Line 3 is designed to be 100% accessible to all, with spaces for people with disabilities inside the cars and dedicated infrastructure at all stations. The line is an example of a modern, inclusive transport system that offers passengers a reliable, safe and comfortable travel experience while remaining environmentally sustainable,” said Maite Ramos, Managing Director of Alstom Mexico.
Alstom has been active in Mexico since the development of the first metro line in Mexico City in 1968. The contract about the Guadalajara line was closed in 2014 and included 18 Metropolis trains and their integrated systems with communication systems, high-voltage and traction substations as well as traffic control systems.
