Product overview

Trainguard MT – the high-performance CBTC system for maximum throughput and capacity

With challenges such as rapidly growing traffic flows and rising passenger expectations, success for rail operators today is measured on factors such as safety, punctuality and convenience – and, of course, capital and operational expenditure. With Trainguard MT, you can count on 100% punctuality and a 20% reduction in energy expenditure thanks to automatic train operation. Increasing automation also means that the responsibility for operations management gradually shifts from drivers and operators to the system – resulting in increased flexibility as well as improved performance, reliability, and maintainability.
