    In metropolitan areas people are continually on the go. And in a hurry. Appointments, private or business, set the pace. Light rail vehicles are reliable and increasingly replace cars as the means of transportation. With modern technology, they provide reliability down to the minute. At the same time, many trips mean high loads. Our systems and components ensure maximum reliability and comfort. So that everyone arrives safely and on time. At each stop.

    Cooling system and Scharfenberg coupler on a monorail type Innovia 300 from Bombardier driving in Sao Paulo

    Facilitate travel in metropolitan areas

    Innercity mobility depends on the amount of space available. And space is in short supply in megacities such as Mumbai or São Paulo. Modern monorail systems can help overcome such obstacles. They travel along their own right-of-way over streets and buildings, supported on pylons. We supply components and systems to make this possible. And as safe as possible. Millions of people reach their destinations safely and reliably in this way - even if it's a tight squeeze.

    High-tech at its best

Speeds of up to 400 km/h are already being achieved today. This makes them a practical alternative to airplanes. We supply important components in the areas of couplings, safety and drives. And we advance development. To ensure that what is possible becomes reality.
