MTR chooses MCS Solutions software for work planning and optimization in Stockholm subway and commuter train stations
In December 2016, MTR Corporation will commence operating Stockholm’s commuter rail lines on a ten-year contract, in addition to already operating the subway network.
The company will be using myMCS from MCS Solutions to organize all the work in the station surroundings, including inspection rounds, planning and tracking of operations and collecting energy management data.
Consisting of four lines that serve Stockholm via a radial route, the commuter rail network covers a total of 241 kilometers and 53 stations. Each day, around 300,000 passengers use this service to commute from the suburbs to the capital and back.
Before making its decision, MTR compared various systems including the option to build a custom made solution. The standard myMCS solution came out on top.
MTR is a subsidiary of the Hong Kong-based MTR Corporation, a multinational group that operates railway networks in countries including China, Australia and the UK.
