MTR Stockholm AB
Since autumn 2009 and for a minimum of eight years thereafter, MTR Stockholm (MTRS) has the responsibility for the running, planning and maintenance of the Stockholm underground system. MTR Stockholm is a subsidiary of MTR Europe in London, and employs about 3,000 people.
MTR has ambitious goals for how the underground will be developed and changed in future. The aim is to create a world-class underground system. MTR understand the importance of the underground for all the travellers that use it on a daily basis. Every day, more than one million journeys are made, and these should all be a positive experience. With a real customer focus and with security, punctuality, cleanliness and service as MTR’s guiding principles, the goal is to have a sustainable metro system. Low noise emission is one of the key issues.
Vehicle maintenance is handled by other project partner Tunnelbanan Teknik (TBT), which is a collaboration between MTR Stockholm and Norway’s leading train maintenance company, Mantena.

Reason for participation in the project
