Posted on July 22, 2011

Bombardier Transportation received an order from the Florida Department of Transportation for the supply of 14 Bombardier BiLevel railcars for the central Florida SunRail commuter rail project to provide service to the Orlando area.

The contract is valued at approximately $41 million. Under the agreement, up to an additional 46 vehicles could be ordered. Deliveries are planned between May and August 2013.

This order brings the total number of North American BiLevel car customers to 14 with nearly 1,000 cars already in operation across the U.S. and Canada. Hundreds of thousands of commuters in major metropolitan centers including Miami, Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal rely on Bombardier BiLevel commuter rail cars to get them to and from work every day.
