BERLIN, GERMANY–(Marketwired – April 15, 2013) – Rail
technology leader Bombardier Transportation announced today that it has
signed a contract with the State of Florida Department of Transportation to
provide operations and maintenance services for the Central Florida Commuter
Rail Transit project (also known as SunRail). The contract is valued at
approximately $195 million US ($199 million CAD, 149 million euro), and
includes mobilization activities followed by 10 years of service.
Bombardier’s scope of work for the SunRail commuter rail service will include
operations, dispatching, fleet maintenance, track maintenance, customer

The fleet for the SunRail service will include 20 BOMBARDIER BiLevel commuter
rail cars that Bombardier will begin delivering this spring. Over 1,000
Bombardier BiLevel cars are already in operation across the United States and
“We are proud to be part of this very important expansion of public
transit in Central Florida, which will increase people’s mobility, provide a
regional transportation alternative to Central Florida’s congested roads, and
benefit the regional economy,” said Raymond Bachant, President,
Bombardier Transportation North America. “This new agreement confirms
Bombardier’s leadership position as a provider of passenger rail equipment and
services in North America and worldwide. Our strong services portfolio
complements our innovative products and technologies, allowing us to form a
