Pilot Line

In 1979, after testings and granting of the first patents (by the UK, followed by Japan, Germany, United States, France, and Brazil, among others), the Brazilian Urban Transport Company (Empresa Brasileira de Transportes Urbanos – EBTU) became a project partner and in the same year, a contract was signed between Coester and EBTU. In 1983, the construction of the Pilot Line began. With an extension of approximately 1 km, the Aeromovel made its first trip in downtown Porto Alegre, running along Avenida Loureiro da Silva. In 1986, the project was completed thanks to financing through FINEP (Funding Authority for Studies and Projects). 

The Pilot Line works as an important test and study laboratory.
