CITYFLO systems for train operations offer technological solutions for automated train operations that comply with high safety and security standards.

With minimum trackside equipment CITYFLO solutions cut down costs and drivers’ intervention significantly.

CITYFLO has the following levels of automation:

  • Automatic train protection (ATP) which controls safe operations,
  • Automatic train operation (ATO) which controls train driving functions, smooth acceleration and braking helping to decrease energy consumption, wear and tear of tracks and rolling stock. The system also controls the precision of train stopping at stations, automatic opening and closing of doors etc.,
  • Automatic train supervision (ATS), including routing, schedule adherence and fault monitoring functions.

Bombardier Transportation (Signal) Ltd. was one of the first Russian enterprises specialising in rail signaling systems to obtain International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS) certification.

The scope of the certification of Bombardier Transportation (Signal) Ltd. includes the manufacturing, design, development and maintenance of rail signaling based on EBI Lock 950 computer-based interlocking (CBI) system. The quality certificate recognises the high level of product and service quality.

The company is now sharing its experience in complying with IRIS certification requirements with its colleagues. Bombardier’s specialists are actively participating in seminars and trainings organised by certification bodies to spread the information about the certification.
