April 22, 2021

Knorr-Bremse and Stadler US Inc. have concluded a major equipment order for 254 metro rail cars for Atlanta’s public transport operator, MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority), including an option for an additional 100 cars.

The long-term contract, valued at a lower double-digit million-euro sum, runs from the beginning of Q1 2022 through 2028. Knorr Brake Company (KBC), the U.S. passenger rail subsidiary of Knorr-Bremse, will deliver the braking systems to Stadler US Inc.

The trains will operate the entire MARTA railway network and chiefly contribute to offering advanced, state-of-the-art, quick and reliable urban transport for the roughly 5.8 million inhabitants of the U.S. State of Georgia’s capital.
