Ontario’s local public operator Metrolinx awarded Siemens Mobility a contract to provide track, signal, and right-of-way maintenance services for the railway infrastructure system that makes up the West Region of Toronto. The contract includes service for three years with an additional two-year option.
Siemens Mobility’s suite of digital tools and software will complement the knowledge and expertise their teams possess with the intelligent use of rail data to provide Metrolinx with superior service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
“With the new contract with Metrolinx, we continue to showcase our commitment to being a trusted partner to our customers around the world. With a combination of our on-the-ground rail infrastructure maintenance experience and our suite of digital services, we can ensure up to 100% system availability. This will ultimately enhance the passenger experience and support passenger growth in the years ahead,” Johannes Emmelheinz, CEO of Customer Services at Siemens Mobility said.
Currently, Siemens Mobility provides various services and products to Metrolinx including signal and communications back-office support and fault control services at Metrolinx’s Network Operations Center (NOC) in Oakville, Ontario. This new maintenance service contract will further strengthen Siemens Mobility’s ongoing relationship with Metrolinx while increasing the organization’s footprint in the Greater Toronto Area.
With 20 transit lines and serving more than 100 million passengers, Metrolinx works to improve the coordination and integration of all modes of transport in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
