A growing region gets a much-needed upgrade in its transportation system

Safe, reliable, and efficient transportation is the goal of Trensurb, the agency responsible for upgrading the rail system in a southern region of Brazil. Overcrowded highways were once a part of daily life for commuters between these rapidly-growing cities. But with the train system provided by Hitachi Transportation Systems, Trensurb was able to meet its goal and provide commuters with the means to get where they need to be with amazing reliability.
