MTR Wins Concession to Operate Stockholm Commuter Rail Service
MTR Wins Concession to Operate Stockholm Commuter Rail Service
MTR Press Release 09/12/15

The MTR Corporation welcomes the announcement by the Stockholm County Council to award MTR Nordic, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Corporation, the concession to operate and maintain the Stockholm Commuter Rail Systems (Stockholms Pendeltåg) for an initial period of 10 years, starting from December 2016, with the option to extend for a further four years.

The Stockholms Pendeltåg connects Sweden’s capital city with surrounding county areas. It consists of four rail lines with a total length of 241 km serving 53 stations and carrying around 87 million passenger journeys a year.

“The awarding of this contract is further international recognition of MTR’s ability to deliver highly reliable train service and excellent customer service. This is also a deepening of our presence in Sweden where we have been operating the Stockholm Metro since 2009 and recently our concession, which was due to expire in 2017, was extended for another six years in recognition of our strong track record of service improvements. Our other wholly owned subsidiary MTR Express (Sweden) AB also successfully launched MTR Express, a premiumquality intercity service between Stockholm and Gothenburg, earlier this year,”said Mr Lincoln Leong, Chief Executive Officer of MTR Corporation.
