Bombardier Transportation announced today that it will provide an additional 60 Bombardier TWINDEXX Vario double-deck coaches to Israel Railways (ISR). This call-off order is part of a framework agreement signed in October 2010 and is valued at approximately $120 million.

As the Israeli public transportation market continues to grow, demand for additional capacity and more frequent service is increasing. In response, the government has planned over 7 billion euro in investments to upgrade its railway networks, opening up opportunities for a variety of mobility solutions.

These additional double-deck trains, hauled by the new TRAXX AC electric locomotives ordered in 2015, will represent great strides in helping alleviate congestion in the nation. To further reduce reliance on private cars, Israel is also developing light rail vehicle and monorail systems for several lines.

Deliveries for this call-off order are expected to take place between March 2017 and July 2018.  

Bombardier Transportation covers the full spectrum of rail solutions, ranging from trains to sub-systems and signalling. The company also provides complete transport systems, e-mobility technology and maintenance services.
