A publicly traded French multinational company in the power generation and transport markets. Alstom develops and markets systems, equipment and services for the railway sector.

The company is involved in the light rail project in Jerusalem, which was designed to connect the settlement neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem with the western part of the city and with one another.

Alstom is the manufacturer and provider of the railroad cars for the Jerusalem light rail. Its wholly-owned subsidiary Citadis Israel Ltd. has the contract for providing maintenance for the project for 22 years.

In June 2013, Alstom sold its 20% stake in CityPass to Israel Infrastructure Fund (IIF) and Harel Insurance Investments and Financial Services Ltd for 30 million NIS. However, Alstom, along with the Ashtrom Group, remains the engineering and construction contractor for the project.

In December 2016, Alstom also started a joint pilot with the Jerusalem light rail and the Israeli technology company Mobileye. 


Alstom is publicly traded on the Paris stock exchange (Euronext: ALO).
