SuperVia is responsible for operating the railroad passenger transport system in Rio de Janeiro and another 11 municipalities in the Metropolitan Region. On average, SuperVia receives 620,000 people each day at its 102 stations and on its 190 trains.
Controlled by Odebrecht TransPort since 2011, SuperVia is accelerating the improvements in infrastructure for the railroad network that extends 270 kilometers (km).
In order to ensure that the benefits reach passengers more quickly, the company increased its investments from R$ 1.2 to R$ 2.1 billion. The Rio de Janeiro State Government is responsible for an additional R$ 1.2 billion. In all, R$ 3.2 billion are being invested in solutions designed to make trips safer, more efficient and more comfortable.
Um novo sistema de comunicação avisa os passageiros na plataforma da Central do Brasil o tempo de chegada dos trens. In 2012, 30 trains with four cars each began operating after they were purchased by the state government. In 2016, SuperVia will have a fleet of 201 fully remodeled trains with air conditioning for passengers. For this purpose, it purchased 10 trains with eight cars each four years ahead of time, all manufactured in Brazil. Another 60 Chinese sets were ordered by the state government and will arrive in 2014.
SuperVia's priority is to remodel all 102 stations to ensure that they meet international accessibility standards.
In order to ensure the mobility of the Rio de Janeiro population, five stations are integrated with the subway: Brazil Central Station, São Cristóvão, Triagem, Pavuna and Maracanã. The Bonsucesso station offers access to the Complexo do Alemão Cable Car. Furthermore, all of the stations accept the Single Ticket (Carioca and Intermunicipal) and eligible RioCard cards, allowing for the integration with all of the Rio de Janeiro and Baixada Fluminense bus lines.
The first mass transport system using cable cars in Brazil, the Complexo do Alemão Cable Car has transported more than 9 million passengers since its inauguration in July 2011.
Some 12,000 residents and tourists use the transport that passes through 13 communities in the North Zone of Rio de Janeiro each day. It generates 160 direct jobs, and 60% of the team is made up of residents of Complexo do Alemão.
It extends 3.5 km, has six stations and 152 gondolas, with the capacity to transport eight passengers each.
