Port Authority of NY/NJ extends Bombardier contract

Posted on August 3, 2012

Bombardier Transportation signed a contract with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) to provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services for a further 10 years and a capital asset upgrade program to ensure the system continues to perform optimally. The contract is valued at approximately $243 million.

The AirTrain system at Newark Liberty International Airport first opened in 1996 — the world's first fully automated monorail system at an international airport. A fleet of 12 six-car Bombardier Innovia Monorail 100 trains originally served three airport terminals, three stations at remote parking lots and a rental car center via a dedicated, dual-lane elevated guideway. Since then, the system has been extended to the North East Corridor rail line, with the fleet expanding to 18 six-car trains.

With more than 100 operations and maintenance specialists on site, Bombardier has provided O&M services on the system since it opened. More than 33 million passengers travelled through the airport last year. To accommodate the high passenger volumes, the system operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
