The city is the administrative capital of the Province of Brescia, one of the largest in Italy, with over 1,200,000 inhabitants.
• The Brescia Metro covers 17 stations plus 1 depot, 14 kilometers of route, with a fleet of 18 trains and serves the urban area by connecting the capital from north to south for more than 50,000 daily passengers.
• This new contract includes train to ground communication, video surveillance and security systems.
• The level of passenger safety will be improved thanks to the new broadband data connection system along the metro route and the “real-time” transmission of images from CCTV cameras.
