Public transportation must ensure that passengers are transported in a safe and comfortable environment while also meeting economic and environmental requirements. And passengers expect a comprehensive offering of information, entertainment and communication along the way. Siemens has taken all of these factors into account in developing its vehicles for metro systems, for trams, light rail and commuter trains, for local and regional trains, in its passenger coaches and for intercity and high-speed rail. In different regions throughout the world, the future-oriented, highly flexible locomotives from Siemens enable cost-effective operation while reducing environmental impact and conserving resources. Automated people movers (VAL systems) offer extremely reliable solutions for automated transportation.
