Metro Service A/S
Metro Service A/S is responsible for operation and maintenance of the metro. It is our responsibility to ensure that the M metro runs on time 24 hours a day, and that travelling on the metro is a good experience for our passengers.
Therefore the company consists of a wide range of employees, ranging from electricians and other technicians to the stewards you meet on the train, traffic managers and administrative staff. In total more than 250 persons are employed in Metro Service.
Our largest group of staff is the stewards whose duties include information of passengers, supervision and checking tickets to name a few.
In the control room the metro operation is monitored 24/7 by our traffic managers, and passenger informants answer calls from the stations’ and trains’ call points. If there are changes as to operations, the control room staff also inform about these changes on displays and through the speakers.
Customer service help our passengers by answering all kinds of questions about routes, frequencies, fare zones, fares and tickets.
Technicians ensure that trains and rails are in good condition. Each train is supervised regularly and any damaged parts are repaired or replaced. The rails are checked continuously and once a year they are sanded to make the train journey more comfortable for our passengers and to minimize noise for the metro’s neighbours.
In addition, the company offers a wide range of support functions.
