Whether you are designing and constructing a new metro system or upgrading an existing one, light rail and metro testing is an essential stage in the process to ensure safe and reliable operation. Conducting comprehensive safety testing for urban rail systems involves an overall evaluation of system requirements and moderation of risk analysis, design reviews, monitoring of manufacturing and installation of subsystems, acceptance tests, evaluation of operational procedures as well as energy efficiency solutions. These urban rail transit testing services support operators, rail authorities and manufacturers to verify compliance with changing safety requirements.
Light rail and metro testing provides operators, rail authorities and manufacturers with multiple benefits:
Ensure an urban public transport company’s safe and reliable operation, passenger satisfaction and sustainability without sacrificing performance and cost efficiency
Assure rail authority technical expertise and a comprehensive view, as well as formal correctness by shifting technical responsibility to a third-party technical service provider
Discover weaknesses or problems at an early stage and avoid costly errors and rework later
Ensure compliance with all relevant legislation to achieve market access
