BackgroundEdit

The project has a fund of R$174 million to construct its railway line. The first stage of the project is working with eight cars in the passages Bebedouro/Central Station and Center/Mangabeira.[citation needed] It was later planned to expand operation to cover the route between Maceió and Lourenço Albuquerque.
