Railway transportation

Passenger and cargo mobility through railway systems is one of the most efficient and environmentally responsible ways of transportation. The inherent complexity of these systems requires the technical support of highly specialized experts, capable of providing assistance throughout every phase of the project.

At Cal y Mayor Group, we offer complete services for the development of railway systems for freight and passenger transport, including infrastructure, roads, rolling stock, and operation.

We are currently supervising the expansion of line 12 of the Mexico City Metro, the construction of line 3 of the light rail system in Zapopan, Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque (Jalisco, Mexico).
