Alstom will deliver its Urbalis 400 solution for the approximate 2.2 km-extension of Line 1 that will connect the San Isidro Station with the new Villa Zaíta terminal station. Currently, Line 1 of the Panama Metro is moving an average of 230,000 users per day, which will be expanded after the completion of the new extension.
