Bombardier wins Metrolink fleet maintenance contract

Posted on October 3, 2016

Rail technology company Bombardier Transportation signed a new contract with the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) of Los Angeles to provide eight years of maintenance services for SCRRA's Metrolink commuter rail fleet.

The contract is valued at approximately $23 million per year and is subject to adjustment based on any changes to the current service plan. The agreement includes a single four-year option.

While the new contract will take effect on Jan. 1, 2017, Bombardier has been providing maintenance services for Metrolink under previous contracts since 1998. Among its responsibilities, Bombardier ensures the availability and reliability of Metrolink's fleet of locomotives and passenger cars, including Bombardier BiLevel coaches. Bombardier's maintenance on-time performance average over the past 12 months is 99.87%.

Metrolink is the third largest commuter rail agency in the U.S. based on directional route miles and the eighth largest based on annual ridership, serving Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Venture Counties. Working together with Metrolink and its other partners, Bombardier contributes to the improved mobility, cleaner air, and enhanced quality of life that public transportation brings to this fast-growing, increasingly congested region.

Worldwide, Bombardier maintains more than 9,000 rail vehicles. In North America, Bombardier provides maintenance and/or operations services to transit systems including Agence Metropolitaine de Transport in Montreal, the Central Florida Commuter Rail Transit project train service and the Maryland Area Regional Commuter Train Service. Bombardier also supports transit systems with overhaul and refurbishment programs as well as with material and technology solutions.
