Bombardier’s scope in the project is the overall design of the vehicle; integration of the vehicle systems; bogie design; and the supply of propulsion, electrical and communication systems. The trains will operate at up to 80.7 mph.

Deliveries are scheduled to start in August 2010 and continue through December 2011.
