At Bombardier, our smart regional, intercity and high speed rail solutions are revitalizing rail lines in countries worldwide. Our best-in-class regional trains make rail travel reliable, enjoyable and convenient. They drive regional tourism and new out-of-city housing developments.
Our advanced intercity rail solutions offer the perfect place to work, rest and play while travelling between densely populated urban centres.
And you can’t beat our formula for high speed success—high performance, sustainability and reliability. That’s why we’ve helped design and deliver almost all major European very high speed trains and numerous international high speed projects worldwide.
More and more cities are investing in high-capacity urban transport networks to facilitate growth, accommodate ever-growing numbers of commuters and alleviate traffic congestion.
On track for cities and regions
From rural locations to city centres in minutes, the growing demand for attractive inter-regional and region-to-city connections has led to the rebirth of many rail lines. In fact, comfortable, frequent connections by regional trains are an essential factor in the placement of new housing developments in out-of-city areas as well as major enabler for increased regional tourism.
Meeting high passenger expectations
Passenger comfort and convenience is paramount and our regional trains offer flexible and robust interiors as well as the technology to achieve minimum journey times. For example, on routes with many curves, tilting ability enables a noticeably faster travel speed.
Intercity rail offers comfortable, safe and environmentally friendly connections from city centre to city centre. Bombardier intercity trains represent the optimum solution for travel between densely populated areas.
Introducing a new generation
Our new TWINDEXX Express double-deck intercity train ramps up capacity and speed while providing greater operational efficiency and exceptional passenger comfort.
Incorporating ECO4 energy-saving technologies
Our Intercity trains feature various innovative solutions out of our ECO4 portfolio which makes the idea of sustainable mobility a tangibility reality today.
Bombardier has been a key player in the design and delivery of almost all major European very high speed trains as well as other significant international high speed projects, with an impressive portfolio of over 20 products worldwide.
Performance, sustainability, reliability
Our ZEFIRO high speed (HS) and very high speed (VHS) family takes rail transport to the next level by setting the benchmark in very high performance, very high efficiency and very high dedication.
Bombardier’s ZEFIRO high speed train family
Is the culmination of the company’s long-standing reputation in this market segment. Developed for speeds between 250 and 380 km/h, ZEFIRO offers the highest levels of comfort and capacity, low operating costs and diverse application options for different countries and railway networks.
Locomotives for rail freight and passenger service
Innovation and expertise for locomotive-hauled rail transportation
Innovative products continually demonstrate the leading position enjoyed by Bombardier Transportation in locomotive construction. Developments over the past few years have been setting new benchmarks: TRAXX is the most successful locomotive platform in Europe with over 1600 locomotive sold for freight and passenger service. The E464 platform, with a total of 699 vehicles sold, is successfully in service in Italian passenger transit and the locomotives of the ALP platform, operating in North America, are further examples of accomplished products for passenger service.
Efficient operation in service
Low maintenance costs and reduced energy consumption make Bombardier’s locomotives very attractive. The latter is important not only when it comes to economic aspects. Lower energy consumption has a positive effect on the environment and saves resources. Bombardier dedicates itself to the challenge of developing ever greater vehicle energy efficiency.
Constant change and customer orientation
Locomotives are long-term economic assets. Locomotive service lives of 30 to 40 years are obligatory. For this very reason, Bombardier makes continually optimising its product portfolio one of its top priorities. Innovations for new products, as well as innovations aimed at locomotives already in service throughout the Continent, are all part of the same picture. By incorporating experience and know-how gained during operation, Bombardier locomotives are further developed as requirements increase, allowing them to be adapted to constant change.
Bombardier Transportation is the world’s leading provider of propulsion and control equipment for trains. Our solutions set the standard in reliability and sustainability.
Without propulsion and control equipment, no train can move. This equipment defines the vehicle’s performance in the end. Bombardier Transportation provides the complete chain of propulsion and control equipment for all types of trains.
Thanks to the extensive experience gained in developing and producing running gear for rail vehicles for more than 160 years BOMBARDIERFLEXX bogies are world-renowned for their quality, innovation and performance. More than 200,000 FLEXX bogies are successfully operating worldwide.
