Bombardier builds first bi-level car for future New Mexico commuter-rail system


The first of 10 bi-level commuter-rail cars for the New Mexico Mid-Region Council of Governments recently rolled off Bombardier Transportation’s assembly line.

The car is part of a $22 million order the government placed with Bombardier in October 2004.

Scheduled to be delivered between August and October, the cars will operate on the Belen-to-Bernalillo New Mexico Rail Runner Express, which is expected to open by year end.
