Alstom to supply OC Transpo DMUs

Posted on September 19, 2011

Alstom Transport will supply six new diesel multi-unit (DMU) trainsets to OC Transpo, the urban transit service for the city of Ottawa.

The order is part of OC Transpo's plan to continuously upgrade O-Train rolling stock and infrastructure and continue providing the quality service Ottawa passengers have come to expect. The new Alstom DMUs, called Coradia Lint, will be delivered in May 2013.

Features of the Coradia Lint include lower emissions and better fuel economy, providing a cleaner vehicle and reduced emissions; passenger capacity of 260; flexible operation with short travelling times and small stop distances that help meet demanding timetables; and performances proven on European networks with more than 500 vehicles delivered to date, according to Alstom

The O-Train is an approximately five-mile light rail service that began as a pilot project in 2001. The initial ridership target of the O-Train pilot project was between 5,100 and 6,400 customer-trips per day, but has since reached 12,000, and today carries 2.3 million passengers annually.
