On 8 October 2020, Bombardier Transportation unveiled the next-generation design of its MOVIA metros for two of Singapore’s longest Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Lines. Inspired by the city’s vibrant charm, the red and green pulse lines running along the bodyshells provide a contemporary visual emphasis for passenger entrance doors. The new 106 six-car MOVIA metro trains for the high-capacity North-South and East-West Lines (NSEWL) running at 102 km in length and serving 59 stations, will connect commuters all across Singapore.
The vehicle interior features more open spaces for wheelchairs and prams, supporting LTA's vision of a more inclusive public transportation system. Bombardier is responsible for design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, testing, commissioning and delivery of the MOVIA metro trainsets for the NSEWL system. These next-generation new trains are scheduled to enter passenger service from 2022.
