Efficient and integrated transportation of people and goods by rail and road – all products, solutions and services regarding mobility in the USA are handled by the Mobility Division.
What we do
The demand for mobility is increasing – both in the US and worldwide. Transporting people and goods to all corners of the earth presents challenges for the infrastructure of national economies. This applies, in particular, to the transport and logistics facilities of cities: Will cities be able to solve the problems caused by increasing road traffic? Can public transportation help them avoid total gridlock? How can railway operators increase the efficiency and safety of their systems? How can rail and road traffic be integrated? How can logistics supply chains be further optimized as freight volumes continue to increase steadily?
The Mobility Division provides answers to all of these questions with its comprehensive portfolio; because modern, interconnected and IT-based mobility is the core competency of its five business units: Mobility Management, Turnkey Projects & Electrification, Mainline Transport, Urban Transport and Customer Services. They have the know-how to make road traffic in the US flow more smoothly and quickly, make trains more environmentally friendly and efficient, make train schedules and freight shipments more reliable. We work with our customers to develop optimal solutions to help overcome their challenges.
In New York for example, Siemens is assisting the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) in shortening travel time for around 162,000 commuters traveling to the eastern side of Manhattan from eastern Queens and Long Island. Siemens supported the MTA from the early stages – with preliminary designs, budgetary estimates and technical meetings. In 2012, Siemens was awarded a contract to provide reliable power distribution networks to safeguard the normal operation of stations, ensuring commuters travel from A to B without delays.
