Bombardier Transportation signed a contract with the 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 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 service, station platform and facility maintenance, and material supply. The Bombardier team will mobilize for service over the coming months and assume its operations and maintenance responsibilities in the spring of 2014.
The fleet for the SunRail service will include 20 Bombardier BiLevel commuter railcars that Bombardier will begin delivering this spring. Over 1,000 Bombardier BiLevel cars are already in operation across the U.S. and Canada.
