For cities or airports looking to increase availability or expand existing networks, the proven signalling solution Cityflo 650 is suitable for all levels of automation and offers increased mass-transit capacity and the highest safety standards. Alstom’s complete turnkey monorail and automated people mover (APM) systems can rapidly and cost-efficiently be deployed with low infrastructure and environmental impact.
High reliability and safety
The Cityflo 650 solution has been designed to meet the most stringent safety, reliability, maintainability, and availability requirements. The technology also allows a high degree of operating flexibility to accommodate peak passenger demands and can connect with future mobility projects.
Communications-based train control (CBTC) is tackling the capacity challenge worldwide. It provides advantages for safe and cost-effective infrastructure management for the full range of mass transit systems and for all grades of automation.
CBTC reduces the headway between vehicles, enabling trains to run closer to each other compared to a fixed block system. Citfyflo 650 can be used as an overlay to upgrade existing systems or for new greenfield lines.
Innovia monorail Cairo, Egypt
The National Authority for Tunnels has chosen the consortium of Alstom, Orascom Construction and Arab Contractors to design and build two Innovia monorail lines in Cairo. A 57 km line will connect East Cairo to the New Administrative Capital and a second 42 km line will connect the 6th October City to Giza.
Innovia monorail Bangkok Pink and Yellow line
In 2017, Alstom was awarded a contract to deliver fully automated monorail systems for the Pink (34.5km) and Yellow (30.4km) lines in Bangkok.
Innovia monorail São Paulo
In 2010, Alstom was awarded an order for a 24 km monorail system in São Paulo. The 54 seven-car driveless innovia monorail trains are equipped with Cityflo 650 automatic train control and will connect the 17 stations in just 50 minutes; halving the travel time from two hours by car for up to 600,000 passengers daily. Phase 1 of the system was opened in 2014.
Innovia APM Los Angeles International Airport, USA
In June 2018, Alstom and a consortium partner were chosen to design, build and finance, operate and maintain a new automated people mover system.
Ensuring performance and efficiency
The first ever radio-based, moving block CBTC system, Cityflo 650, was first installed in 2003 on the APM system at San Francisco International Airport. Today, the solution has been adopted on more than 30 rail lines worldwide, with another 30 under implementation.
Thanks to its advanced features, such as driverless technology and regenerative braking, the system is extremely efficient to operate. Service is frequent, reliable and safe, meaning more comfort for passengers and more revenue for cities.
