  3. Why does the number or type of cars vary from one train to another?

    The reason is simple: every month, we plan the distribution of cars for each train based on ridership in order to optimize rolling stock use. To ensure your comfort, we use a standard that calls for a maximum density of two standing passengers per square meter, and that states that standing time should not exceed 25 minutes.

    To facilitate train boarding, the number of cars that make up the next train is announced on the dynamic display screens five minutes before the train's arrival.
