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.
