X'Trapolis suburban train

Alstom Transport’s X'Trapolis high-capacity trains are designed to transport users to and from suburban centres.

An unrivalled expertise

Using technological expertise acquired through over 30 years of experience in suburban and regional transport, Alstom has expanded its range with X’Trapolis Mega, the optimal train for the metric gauge market.

Eco-designed, X’Trapolis Mega consumes 31% less energy than existing fleets due to its lighter stainless steel bodyshell and IGBT regenerative braking system, associated with a 66% motorisation ratio.

High-capacity trains

X’Trapolis is a high-capacity train (up to 30,000 pphpd) and its wide doors (three per car) ensure optimal passenger flow during rush hour.

X’Trapolis navigates high density networks with ease thanks to its automatic train operation (ATO) signalling system which optimises flows over the entire line.

A modular train that enables extremely flexible solutions

X’Trapolis offers a wide choice of modular options for different levels of network traffic and to assure optimum passenger flow in stations: different train lengths, single-decker or double-decker trains, variable width and number of doors, etc.

X’Trapolis adapts to the characteristics of each network, whatever the track gauge or power supply.

X’Trapolis combines comfort, accessibility and reliability

Generous interior circulation makes it easier to move about inside the train. Large windows enhance visibility within, providing passengers with a greater sense of security.

X’Trapolis is also equipped with modern passenger interfaces and communication systems, ergonomic seats and areas designed for people with reduced mobility.

The reliability and availability of Alstom’s suburban trains is well established:  the availability rate of X’Trapolis fleets reaches 97%.
