On track to operate a world-class metro in Stockholm

25 June 2012  •  Author(s): Peter Viinapuu, CEO, MTR Stockholm

Operating on 108km of track, over three lines, and serving 100 stations, the underground metro network in Stockholm is far more than a mode of transport; it’s an absolutely critical piece of the puzzle that makes the city work. In a special interview for Eurotransport, Peter Viinapuu, CEO of MTR Stockholm, is keen to highlight the key aspects behind the goal of operating a world-class underground network.

“Public transport is like the water in the tap,” says Peter Viinapuu, CEO of MTR Stockholm. “It is only when it ceases to work properly that most people become aware of it. We take both our water supply and our public transport for granted. Put simply, underground trains should be on time, safe, secure and clean.”

But Peter and MTR Stockholm have far greater ambitions for the network. “We want to create a world-class under – ground network, and to do that it’s not enough to simply meet the passengers’ expectations,” says Peter.

“We want our passengers to actively and consciously choose to use the underground, because it is the best option.”
