Presentation at Rail Live! Madrid 2021 of the collaboration project on innovation with the urban and metro platform at global level

December 2, 2021 – Alstom Group and Fundación ONCE have presented at Rail Live! Madrid 2021, their new collaboration project on innovation, through which both entities will work together on the development of innovations for the design and manufacture of the next generation of Alstom metros. The objective of both organisations with this new project is to develop new solutions that increase the accessibility of vehicles and facilitate mobility for passengers with any type of disability. 

After having collaborated on several projects in Spain, such as Barcelona Metro for TMB or high capacity trains for Renfe, Fundación ONCE now becomes a strategic partner of the Alstom Group worldwide. Fundación Once will collaborate directly with the Metro and Suburban Platform at global level, actively participating in different innovation workshops, being part of the advisory committee on inclusion, and evaluating innovations proposed from the different platforms within Alstom.

"Thanks to this agreement with Fundación ONCE, we are taking an important step-forward in our commitment to inclusive mobility. We all, at some point in our lives, experience some kind of disability, whether temporary or permanent. Consequently, our solutions must be born from the origin with Universal Design criteria to respond to all passengers."

Paloma Morán
Vice President of Alstom's Metro and Suburban Platform

Paloma Morán, Vice President of Alstom's Metro and Suburban Platform said: "We have a huge responsibility towards the 30 million passengers who travel every day in a metro manufactured by Alstom. We must make their mobility simple, fluid, barrier-free, inclusive, and universal. Thanks to this agreement with Fundación ONCE, we are taking an important step-forward in our commitment to inclusive mobility. We all, at some point in our lives, experience some kind of disability, whether temporary or permanent. Consequently, our solutions must be born from the origin with Universal Design criteria to respond to all passengers".

José Luis Martínez Donoso, CEO of Fundación ONCE, said, "The shared mission we share with Alstom has just begun. We are united by our common commitment and passion: helping more people every day to move around in comfortable, safe, and reliable environments. We are embarking on this new path full of enthusiasm and with the certainty that this partnership will mark a before and after in the way we understand urban transport".

Since 2019, with the signing of the first collaboration agreement, Fundación ONCE and Alstom Spain have worked together on the development of different proposals, to ensure accessibility for people with all kinds of specific needs. Among these projects is the manufacture of 42 new-generation metros for TMB in Barcelona.  Alstom presented 1:1 scale model of the Barcelona metro trains at its stand at Rail Live! 2021
