BART adds to Bombardier order

Posted on June 27, 2012

The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) confirmed an order for 150 additional Bombardier Transportation railcars valued at approximately $266 million.

The order represents the exercise of an option under a contract signed on June 14. With this option, Bombardier now has firm orders for 410 cars with a total value of approximately $897 million.

Designated by BART as its "Fleet of the Future," the new cars will replace BART`s entire existing fleet and enable system expansion. Bombardier will assemble the cars at its manufacturing plant in Plattsburgh, N.Y.

Ten pilot cars are scheduled to be delivered in the spring of 2015, followed by comprehensive testing of the pilot cars on the BART system. The delivery of the 400 remaining production series cars is expected to follow between early 2017 and the spring of 2020.
