Bombardier Transportation won a $14 million Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) contract for the refurbishment and overhaul of 34 MARC IIB push-pull commuter rail cars.
The overhaul includes work on the body, trucks, HVAC, brakes, door controls and other systems and components. The project will also include addition of new bike racks. Work will be carried out at Bombardier's overhaul facilities in Kanona, N.Y. The cars, which run on the MTA network between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., will all be returned into service by 2010.
