New Bombardier assembly site for BART's 'Fleet of the Future'

Posted on June 18, 2019 by Kendra Rodriguez

Bombardier announced that Pittsburg, California is the new location for its railcar assembly site, which is slated to soon be fully operational in the Bay Area.

The site will act as a “sister site” to its upstate New York counterpart, which has been working on rail equipment for Bombardier’s 775-car contract with BART. The first rail equipment off the Pittsburg assembly line will be the “Fleet of the Future” railcars.

It will serve several purposes including retaining and creating local jobs and alleviating space at the New York site for new and upcoming East Coast orders. Bombardier has been a U.S. manufacturer for nearly 40 years. The site will help to strengthen its U.S. presence and commitment to the U.S. market while also helping them to meet Buy America requirements, according to the company.
