Bombardier wins Montreal rail contract

Posted on February 8, 2010

Bombardier Transportation announced it won a three-year contract with Montreal's Agence metropolitaine de transport (AMT), valued at approximately $31 million, to provide locomotive and passenger rail car maintenance service for part of the AMT fleet.

This new maintenance service contract means that Bombardier will be fully responsible for the maintenance of rolling stock for the Dorion-Rigaud, Blainville-St-Jerome and Delson-Candiac lines over the next three years. The Bombardier team will gradually mobilize itself over the next few months with a view to taking over all maintenance on July 1, 2010.

An established Bombardier customer, the AMT is the second largest commuter train transit system in Canada and the sixth largest region in terms of traffic in North America. In addition to operating the commuter trains in the metropolitan area, the AMT is the organization responsible for planning, integrating and coordinating mass transit services in the Greater Montreal area.
