Gruppo Torinese Trasporti (GTT) has launched the service on the 3.6km extension of its fully automated metro line in Turin, Italy.

The company has purchased another six Val 208 type vehicles, using automation systems and rolling stock supplied by Siemens, following a contract signed in 2000.

The new line features six stations, runs southwards, parallel with the Po River, and extends the existing 13.2km Line 1.

The 52m Val 208 train with four cars can accommodate a maximum of 440 passengers and adapt to changes in their loadings.

The new section runs metros at two-minute intervals during rush hours and features flashing visual and loud acoustic signals.

The extension expects to increase the current daily ridership from 90,000 to 140,000 passengers.
