Bombardier Transportation has been awarded a contract by the City of Phoenix for an extension to the PHX Sky Train® automated people mover (APM) system at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The agreement represents Stage 2 of the system and covers a 2.5-mile extension to the airport's rental car center, two new stations, an expansion of the system's maintenance facility, and the supply of 24 additional Bombardier INNOVIA APM 200 vehicles.

The contract is valued at approximately $305 million and includes options for three additional vehicles as well as for various vehicle retrofits and upgrades.

Under contracts awarded in 2009 for Stage 1 of the system, Bombardier designed and supplied all electrical and mechanical equipment, including the company's CITYFLO 650 automatic train control technology, a maintenance facility, and a fleet of 18 INNOVIA APM 200 vehicles. In addition, Bombardier has provided operations and maintenance services since the system opened in 2013.

The APM system in Phoenix has achieved over 99.5% availability each year since the system opened, and reached 100% availability in a given month six times, most recently for the month of January.
