As of March 2018 there are more than 1,000 km of metro lines in Fully Automated Operation (FAO) worldwide. FAO lines are running in 42 cities, becoming a common site among metro systems, with nearly a quarter having at least one automated line.
This new Statistics Brief from UITP explores the characteristics of automated lines, analyses the growth of the past decade, and offers a perspective on the future of FAO lines. Chinese cities are set to power a tremendous growth in FAO, with an expected tripling of all the automated metro kilometres worldwide by 2022 if all confirmed projects advance according to plan.
Also for the first time, UITP is publishing a comprehensive dataset of the detailed characteristics of automated metro lines. The dataset is available for free for UITP Premium Members on MyLibrary. UITP Advantage and Standard Members can purchase the dataset for 400 euros. Non-members can purchase the dataset for 800 euros.
