Public transport networks are more and more committed to the railway as the centre of mobility. In this evolution, administrations and operators want the advice from the best experts to implement modern, sustainable, and high efficiency systems. The Spanish industry has become the main ally of these projects in countries on the five continents.
A position supported by its work in the implementation of the many and diverse systems that have been established in the main cities of Spain. The technological solutions and services of these companies have crossed thousands of frontiers and are located in urban centres on all continents. In addition, they have led the implementation of comprehensive transport plans and commuter and medium-distance railway connections that help improve mobility in and out of the cities.
The commitment to their advice and implementation of urban transport networks is based on the high ability they have shown in recent years.

Proof of this are projects such as the Riyadh Metro, which has been characterised by its great complexity from a technical point of view; also the Lima metro or the Toronto metro, among a long list that goes around the world. In addition, they have been the main character of the mobility programmes of large cities such as the Master Plan of Public Transport of Muscat (Oman), or the Master Plan of the Kuwait City Metro (Kuwait), among others. On the other hand, the experience gained in the implementation of the longest automated metro line in Europe, the L9 in suburban Barcelona, has also become international. Many of the contracts include automatic driving systems and rolling stock families for these lines. These include, for example, the Singapore, Sydney, or Amsterdam Metro.
