Metro milestones are being achieved all over the world…
After the groundbreaking success of our 2017 World Metro Statistics Brief, UITP is the trusted voice for bringing the latest statistics to a worldwide audience.
The World Report on Metro Automation 2018 Statistics Brief introduces the current standing of automated metros across the globe – and expectations for the years to come.
Last year witnessed the milestone achievement of 1000km of automated metros reached as the Pujiang Line opened for use in Shanghai.
As of December 2018, nearly a quarter of the world’s metro systems have at least one fully automated line in operation.
Within the latest UITP Stats Brief - sourced from the database of automated metro lines of the UITP Observatory of Automated Metros – you will find the latest on infrastructure, growth, signaling technology, characteristics and trends, and more, connected to you statistics on cities, countries and lines.
