MTR Stockholm (MTRS), a wholly-owned subsidiary established in 2009, has operated the metro system in Sweden’s capital city since November 2009. According to our Operations & Maintenance franchise with Stockholm’s public transport agency, AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL), we have total responsibility for our passengers’ entire metro travelling experience. This includes railway operations, stations, in-station services, and engineering of rail system related projects and infrastructure. Fleet maintenance is handled by TBT, which is a joint venture between MTRS and Norway’s leading train maintenance company, Mantena.
Stockholm’s population is increasing at the rate of 40,000 residents per year, making it one of the fastest growing cities in Europe. In order to satisfy the transportation demands of this dynamic and expanding city, we are committed under the terms of our operating franchise to achieve high standards for safety, punctuality, cleanliness and customer service. We also work closely with SL to procure new technology for upgrading the metro system and to receive regular feedback on our performance.
Swedish Quality Award
In 2014, MTRS was awarded the 2014 Swedish Quality Award by the Swedish Institute for Quality (SIQ) for demonstrating a long-term, systematic approach to implementing improvements. We are delighted to receive this recognition, and we aspire to continue contributing to the sustainability of Stockholm’s public transportation system in the future.
Vision for the Future
We believe that significant investment is required to expand and improve Stockholm’s public transport system. In partnership with Skanska and Sweco, two Sweden-based multinational companies, we are working on a 60-year sustainable development plan for Stockholm and aspire to play a key role in making this plan a reality in future.
