Astra IVA is a family of metro train used by Bucharest Metro and built in Arad, Romania between 1976 and 1992.

The trains used on the system are made up of various trainsets (rame) connected together. Each trainset is made up of two permanently connected train-cars (B'B'-B'B' formation) that can only be run together.

The Astra Arad rolling stock is approaching the end of its service life, so it is currently being either refurbished by Alstom[1] or phased out.
