Say goodbye to the Arrows:






Bombardier signs US$669M rail car deal with New Jersey

The Canadian Press


MONTREAL -- Bombardier Inc. has signed a US$669-million deal to provide 113 commuter rail cars to New Jersey.

The company says the contract will yield no additional work in Canada, with Buy American rules prompting Bombardier's plant in Plattsburgh, N.Y., to build the multi-level cars, rather than its facility in Quebec.

As of 2018, at least 65 per cent of the cost of components for public transit projects must be manufactured in the United States, with final assembly taking place on American turf as well.

The minimum content threshold will increase to 70 per cent by 2020.

Announced Wednesday, the agreement with New Jersey Transit Corp. includes options for up to 886 additional rail cars.

It's Bombardier's third commuter car deal with the state-owned transit agency, following contracts awarded in 2002 and 2010.

Missing from the conceptuals are the "customers" completely packing the center vestibules with their suitcases and bikes (nobody is going to actually stow them the proper way). and fully deployed strollers to the point nobody can get through, as well as people packing it because nobody can be bothered to stand on the upper or lower levels.  Also missing are the people who try to beat the fare by getting on one end, stooping to see the other end, which way the crewmember goes, then go the opposite direction.  

Also missing is actual employee input and feedback, because if that were included, these wouldn't even be on the table.
