İzmir Metro Introduced Its New Trains: İzmir Metropolitan Municipality shared the designs of new metro trains with the public. An agreement was signed with the Chinese firm CNR earlier this year for the purchase of trains. With a new decision, the number of subway trains ordered was increased.
The agreement for 17 trains with 5 wagons was worth TL 192 million. With the new decision, the quantity ordered to CNR was corrected as 182 wagons. The first of the trains to be produced in China is expected to be delivered in October of 2016. All ordered trains are scheduled to be delivered by May 2017.
The Izmir subway had previously taken trains from China and used them on the lines. 2009 8'er wagons were manufactured by Chinese company CSR Zhuzhou.
