Alstom acquires license for metro 4 trains
French engineering giant Alstom has acquired the final license for trains it is delivering for Budapest's new underground line, the mayor’s office said on Tuesday. The receipt of the license from the national transport authority NKA will allow Alstom to start production and delivery of the vehicles for the number four metro line, which is still under construction, the office said. The driverless “Metropolis” trains each have four carriages. Alstom is also supplying trains for the capital's number two metro line, replacing Soviet-made vehicles that are some 40 years old.
