Bombardier wins 30-year Toronto light rail maintenance contract

Posted on July 28, 2015

Bombardier Transportation won a contract to provide 30-years of maintenance on the Bombardier Flexity Freedom light rail vehicles it will build for service on the new Toronto Eglinton Crosstown line. The contract, which was awarded by the Crosslinx Transit Solutions Maintenance General Partnership, is valued at approximately $308 million.

Bombardier has been subcontracted by the Crosslinx Transit Solutions Maintenance General Partnership, which is acting as the maintainer of the entire system on behalf of the winning consortium responsible for designing, financing, building and maintaining the transit line.

The project is under the authority of Metrolinx, the Government of Ontario agency responsible for the coordination and integration of all modes of transportation in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, and is part of an investment for capital construction costs for the Crosstown LRT, announced in 2010 by the Government of Ontario.

In addition to providing equipment maintenance, Bombardier will also deliver its Automated Vehicle Inspection System (AVI System) and its Bombardier Orbiflo advanced condition monitoring system to automatically inspect the vehicles and provide predictive maintenance capabilities. The company will deliver the Flexity Freedom light rail vehicles to Metrolinx through a separate manufacturing contract signed with the transit agency.
