[IMAGE]Singapore-Downtown-LineFull.jpg[/IMAGE] Bombardier Transportation has received an order for 219 driverless BOMBARDIER MOVIA metro cars from the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA).

The contract is valued at approximately $380 million for the design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, testing, commissioning and delivery of the driverless MOVIA metro vehicles consisting of 3-car trainsets.

The driverless metro cars will cater to the Singapore downtown line stages I, II and III, which will run fully underground. The 24-mile line will transport almost half a million passengers daily.

The trains are designed for a maximum design speed of 55 mph and a maximum operational speed of 49 mph, and are environmentally-friendly through the use of the latest propulsion technology with low energy consumption, optimized performance and also up to 90 percent recyclable.

Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the last quarter of 2012 and to be completed in mid 2016.
