Every single day, millions of people in the New York metropolitan area use the fast and efficient rail transit network. The rail systems have grown alongside the city over a period of almost two centuries. In order to keep up with the growing city and its equally increasing ridership billions of dollars are being invested to make subway and commuter lines fit for the future: modernisation of infrastructure, replacement of rail cars, customer-friendly technologies, expansion of networks. Having been a partner for more than three decades, Bombardier contributes global experience and innovation to these projects.
Bombardier-built subway cars, commuter rail coaches, locomotives, high speed trains and airport people mover systems transport millions of people safely and reliably in the New York metropolitan region every day.
Nearly 4,000 rail vehicles have been built in Bombardier’s rail car manufacturing complex in Plattsburgh, New York. State-of-the-art manufacturing processes as well as a comprehensive testing facility ensure that all vehicles are fully tested for performance and environmental compliance before leaving the site.
Bombardier’s new R179 subway cars for New York City Transit are designed for energy efficiency, customer comfort and a high level of service reliability.
