On the way to Operational Excellence, MetrôRio started in 2014 collecting victories and challenges, and having already overcome several marks. The institution works hard in search of a new mobility concept for Rio de Janeiro – which is going through a great cycle of transformations in the wake of the events that the city will host in these coming years.
The year 2013 marked the full entry into operation of 19 new trains and improved operation by reducing time gaps between trips. It also recorded a decisive role of its modal urban mobility schemes in the two major events that Rio de Janeiro received: the Confederations Cup and the World Youth Day. In 2013, the MetrôRio reopened the General Osório Station (ahead of schedule) and accelerated the preparation of the Uruguay Station. At the institutional level, the company achieved an important victory: the ISO 9001 certification.
