Meeting the need for smart mobility solutions
Concepts that make transport more efficient are in demand with the ever-increasing need for mobility. With our long-standing transport expertise and our IT know-how, we are constantly developing new, intelligent mobility solutions that increase availability of infrastructure, optimize throughput and improve passenger experience. It’s in how we electrify, automate and digitalize infrastructure that we’re setting the benchmark for tomorrow’s mobility – today.
Powerful innovation in new light rail cars
Owned and operated by the City of Calgary, Calgary Transit provides safe, accessible and courteous transportation in one of Canada’s largest municipalities. Since 1909, Calgarians have relied on the service to get them around their community.
Calgary Transit was looking for potential suppliers to provide trains that boasted leading-edge technology and were priced competitively, but it was also essential that strong after-sale service come as part of the package, and that the selected company have proven itself in the industry with a long history and strong track record.

Satisfying the need for seamless mobility
People today expect and need solutions that make their daily mobility simpler, more flexible, faster, more reliable and affordable. Cities and national economies, on the other hand, face the challenge of reducing the costs, space requirements, noise and CO2 emissions of transportation.
The pressure on mobility providers and policymakers to meet these mobility and transportation needs is not just high but growing – by 2050 the urban population is expected to exceed 70%. In the face of these rising demands, the transport industry is now seeking solutions that will take existing transport infrastructure to the next level.
Make mobility safer, faster, more convenient – and fun
Digitalization not only plays a key role for mobility providers in their struggle to achieve the reliability, flexibility and availability they need to make rail solutions cost-efficient: It lies at the heart of making the lives of people who travel easier and more enjoyable. Locomotives, trains, components, train automation systems – everything is a valuable source of data.
With Siemens Digital Services, a state-of-the-art system that processes this wealth of transportation data, transport operators analyze trends and monitor the status of machinery and the flow of passengers and goods to offer a smooth mobility experience.
Digital Services - Keep your trains on the move
Siemens draws on rich transport experience and in-depth expertise to add intelligence – to create smart solutions that not just allow mobility providers to react swiftly to any given situation, but to anticipate them.
And, last but not least, digital solutions ensure an enhanced and contemporary travel experience with constant Internet access and customized services.
