ECUADOR: Pre-operation technical assistance services for the tramway now under construction in Cuenca are being provided by Tenerife tramway operator Metrotenerife, which is aiming to expand its consultancy activities around the world.

As well as providing monitoring and technical assistance during the pre-operation phase, Metrotenerife will provide further support for three years after the start of commercial services in the first quarter of 2019.

The 10·5 route-km tramway running from Parque Industrial to Control Sur with 27 stops will be operated with a fleet of 14 Alstom Citadis trams, similar to the trams in service in Tenerife.
