Bombardier supplies Austria, Canada

Posted on July 6, 2009

[IMAGE]BombardierJuly3Westcoast-Express-BiLevelsFULL.jpg[/IMAGE] Bombardier Transportation has received an order from the Austrian transport operator, Linz Linien GmbH to supply 23 Flexity Outlook trams.

The order is valued at approximately $97 million.

The vehicles, called "Cityrunners," have been in use in Linz since 2001. At the end of May 2009, a further milestone in the collaboration of the two partners was achieved during the launch of the new Postlingbergbahn in a retro-design.

Delivery of the first vehicles is planned for the beginning of 2011.

The new tram on order for Linz is a further development of the 33 Cityrunners, which are already in revenue service in the city. The Flexity Outlook vehicles are 131.2 feet long, 7.5 feet wide and are able to accommodate 224 passengers.

In addition, Bombardier Transportation has received a firm order from the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority (TransLink) for seven Bombardier BiLevel commuter rail vehicles.

The order will add to the West Coast Express’ existing fleet of 37 BiLevel cars providing commuter rail service in the Metro Vancouver region. The estimated value of the contract is $18 million.

Deliveries of the new vehicles are expected to begin in July 2010 and extend through September 2010.

More than 950 Bombardier BiLevel cars are in operation or on order with transit authorities in 13 cities across Canada and the U.S.
