Who makes this/these announcement/PIS systems?
Is it one system across the entire fleet or do we have a Mitusi system, a CAF system and an Alstom system?

Also, in Barcelona I noticed a system similar to some of the DARTs that announced in a very polished voice in Spanish and Catalan "Chime" (next station) "proxima estación" (female) followed by a gruff male voice with the station name. It was comical!

The other funny bit is the Spanish vs Catalan bilingual signage. Sometimes the only difference is one accent or a single letter changes.
