They were loaded onto special trucks, heading for the port
of Tarragona, from where they will be shipped to the Dominican
Republic. The ship is due to arrive in Santo Domingo on or
around New Year’s Eve.

The metro line is due to enter into commercial service on 27
February, 2008.

Line 1 of the Santo Domingo metro links the northern and
southern part of the city, from Villa Mella to La Feria. It
measures 14 kilometres and serves 16 stations. The metro line
reaches the most important commercial areas of the city,
universities and government offices, meaning that it will be
used by a large number of passengers, on a daily basis.

The opening of the line will contribute to solving the public
transport problems that affect Santo Domingo’s
inhabitants, and will significantly improve traffic flows in
the city.

On 31 May 2006, OPRET awarded a contract to Alstom for the
supply of 19 trains, to operate on Line 1 of the Santo
Domingo’s new metro network. Based on the Alstom
Metropolis platform, the trains are being manufactured in the
company’s factory at Santa Perpetua de Mogoda, Barcelona.

Each trainset is made up of three cars - two power cars with
driving desk, and one trailer car. However, they can be
upgraded in the future to incorporate one, two or three
additional coaches.

As currently configured, the trains have a capacity of 64
seated passengers and up to 617 standing. The end cars have an
easy-access area designed especially for disabled people. They
are equipped with video-surveillance, passenger information and
smoke detection systems, and are air conditioned.
