Montreal transit agency to negotiate subway car contract with Bombardier

The Societe de Transport de Montreal (STM) and Bombardier Transportation soon will begin hammering out a contract for replacing the agency’s MR-63 subway cars.

STM plans to establish a project management office that will outline specifications and compare costs of similar procurements. Bombardier will prepare detailed rolling stock requirements and draft a specification book.

Once a contract is approved, Bombardier would design, manufacture and assemble the cars, which will feature twin-engine bogies and stainless steel carbodies. Vehicles could be delivered beginning in 2010.
