Bombardier Transportation signed a five-year extension to its current contract with the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) to provide operations and maintenance services for the Brunswick and Camden Lines of the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) Rail System. The contract extension is valued at approximately $288 million.

“We look forward to continuing to fulfill the mission of MTA by providing safe, efficient, and reliable transportation with world-class customer service,” said Benoit Brossoit, president, Americas Region, Bombardier Transportation. “Bombardier's strong services portfolio complements our innovative products and technologies, allowing us to form a genuine partnership with our customers throughout the entire product life cycle."

The scope of work includes operations; maintenance of a fleet of diesel locomotives and commuter railcars including Bombardier-built multi-level vehicles; customer service; station and facility maintenance; and maintenance of rail infrastructure for the portion of the Brunswick Line owned by MTA.

An established Bombardier customer, MTA is a division of the Maryland Department of Transportation and one of the largest multimodal transit systems in the U.S. In addition to providing operations and maintenance services for the MARC Train's Brunswick and Camden lines, Bombardier also is overhauling 63 MARC III bi-level commuter rail coaches.
