Calif.'s NCTD reaches agreement with contractor

Posted on May 20, 2013

Oceanside, Calif.-based North County Transit District (NCTD) executed a supplemental agreement with its contractor Veolia Transportation, which coincides with the resumption of service of the Sprinter light rail commuter service.

The agreement provides for the implementation of new procedures for communicating critical information between Veolia, its maintenance subcontractor, Bombardier Transportation and NCTD, and the early identification of risks within Sprinter operations and maintenance.

In addition, as part of the efforts of NCTD and its contractors to restore service as quickly as possible, Veolia and Bombardier have agreed to contribute to the direct costs relating to the service interruption and resumption.

“This agreement is a demonstration of NCTD’s commitment to providing the highest quality, safest transportation options to the community. The teamwork between the agency and our private partners during the service interruption allowed us to get our passengers back on board the Sprinter well ahead of initial projections,” said Supervisor Bill Horn, NCTD board chair.
