Urban Mobility

VLT Goiânia

The entire stretch along which the Goiânia LRV will pass will be revitalized, helping improve the city's landscape. ​A historical initiative of the Goiás Government to improve public transport in the capital, the Goiânia Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) will offer those who use public transportation along Anhanguera Avenue a faster and more comfortable service.

With the start of operation scheduled for 2017, the Goiânia LRV will extend 13.6 kilometers (km), have 12 stations, five integration terminals and will connect the extreme West and East regions of the capital, replacing the bus corridor.

It is expected that the LRV operation will help improve the flow of traffic, since each LRV trip is the same as removing eight regular buses or 300 cars from the streets. Goiânia residents will also enjoy gains with the reduction of pollutants, since the LRV is powered by electricity.

The Goiânia LRV will have 30 two-car compositions with the capacity to transport up to 600 passengers per trip at an average speed of 23 km/hour, within three-minute intervals during peak times.

The entire stretch to be used by the trains will be revitalized, from facade to facade, including Anhanguera Avenue itself, together with the sidewalks, car lanes, drainage system, landscaping, lighting and urban furniture. The integration terminals and stations will have accessibility ramps and all trains will be air conditioned.

The development will also be an important generator of jobs and income for the region. It is estimated that 2,500 people will be hired at the peak of the construction work and another 600 will be hired to operate the system.

The Goiânia LRV is a public-private partnership (PPP) with the Goiás Government and will involve an investment of R$ 1.3 billion, R$ 215 million of which will come from the Brazilian federal government, R$ 590 million from the state government and R$ 495 million from the concessionaire.
