Bombardier and Metrolinx amend contract terms

Bombardier has agreed to amend the contract terms with Metrolinx to manufacture light rail vehicles for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT. The amended contract settles the arbitration and brings certainty to the completion of the project.
Under the modified agreement, Bombardier will manufacture 76 LRVs for the Eglinton Crosstown LRT, 106 vehicles less than the original contract for 182 vehicles. In addition, the GO Transit Operations and Maintenance contract was extended by 18-month. This extension solidifies Bombardier’s prominent role as a provider of Operations and Maintenance in the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA) and is a recognition of Bombardier’s performance on the GO Transit contract.
“We have always been resolved to find a clear negotiated path forward, one that delivers value to all parties, and foremost to the people of Ontario. Bombardier is fully committed to the Metrolinx project and to the people of the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area (GTHA),” said Benoit Brossoit, President, Americas Region at Bombardier Transport.
Over the past few months, Bombardier reached new milestones confirming that it is on track to deliver the LRT projects, including high speed testing on the track in Kingston. In addition, the first pilot vehicle successfully completed its climate testing at the National Research Council of Canada facility.
