Bombardierís Innovia APM 300 Enters Passenger Service in Shanghai

Bombardierís Innovia APM 300 train system has entered service on Shanghai Metroís Line 8 Phase 3 project, also known as the Pujiang Line.

The system was produced by Bombardierís Chinese joint venture CRRC Puzhen Bombardier Transportation Systems Limited (PBTS) and is the result of an order placed by Shanghai Shentong Metro Co. Ltd. in June 2015 for a turnkey automated people mover (APM) system with 44 vehicles.

Jianwei Zhang, President of Bombardier China, said, ďWe are very excited to see our world leading fully automatic driverless system enter revenue service in this great city. Iím confident that we will see more Bombardier APM systems in other Chinese cities in the near future. Our metro cars equipped with the Bombardier MITRAC propulsion on Lines 1, 2, 7, 9 and 12 are already moving Shanghai passengers daily, and we also provide maintenance and overhaul service for these cars to ensure passengersí safety. We will continue to provide state of the art solutions to strengthen our long term strategic partnership with Shanghai Shentong.Ē

Shanghaiís Pujiang Line is a new 6.6 km, dual-lane elevated, driverless APM system that solves Pujiangzhenís first-and-last- kilometer challenge by connecting this large residential district to the Line 8 interchange at the Shendu Highway Station.

 The Innovia APM 300 system, Bombardierís latest generation of highly-reliable APM technology, offers an eco-friendly passenger experience with a focus on efficiency and safety. Its rubber tires boast low noise and vibration while its 1.9-meter wide doors facilitate boarding and exit, reducing the time required at each stop. Paired with the Bombardier CITYFLO 650 CBTC system the Innovia APM 300 system also increases lineís capacity by safely reducing the time and distance needed between each vehicle traveling on the line. In addition, the absence of a driverís cabin means passengers sitting in the front have a 270į view angle to enjoy the landscape along the Pujiang Line.
