- Latin America’s first fully automated metro line (GoA 4)
- Siemens Mobility digitalized CBTC technology installed across entire 15 km of track,11 stations, and 29 trains
- Automated signaling provides greater availability, enhanced operations, and passenger experience
ViaQuatro has successfully begun full operation of São Paulo’s entire Metro Line 4 with Siemens Mobility’s Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) signaling. Since its first stretch opened in 2010, it has been the first fully automated metro line in South America that can operate with GoA 4, the highest grade of automation that allows trains to be automatically controlled and operated. The digitalized and optimized system allows for a more efficient and centralized control of operations, while also increasing the safety, availability, and capacity across the entire network.
