Creating Better Rides Worldwide

The confidence transit agencies place in CRRC can be seen in Israel, arguably the most security conscious country in the world.

The Tel Aviv Metropolitan Mass Transit System (NTA) hired CRRC to build explosion-proof trains for their new Red Line. The NTA selected CRRC as its contractor because of CRRC’s excellent reputation, product safety, innovative design, understanding of Israel’s complex geopolitical environment, and ability to meet Israel’s strict security demands.
