Bombardier wins Guadalajara, Mexico light rail contract
Company will build 12 vehicles for city under US$44 million contract
MEXICO CITY—Bombardier has won a light rail contract in Mexico valued at approximately US$44 million.
The company will build 12 TEG-15 light rail vehicles for the Electric Urban Train System of Guadalajara, a transit system serving the central Mexico city.
The Mexico-built trains will be nearly 30 metres long and can carry approximately 350 passengers. The carbon steel tram design will be based on the company’s existing fleet of TE-12 trains designed for a Mexico City transit system. The Montreal-based company said the design has proven highly-reliable with low maintenance costs.
The trams will be designed and produced at Bombardier’s rail division’s facility in Ciudad Sahagún, Mexico.
