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.
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.
First choice for reliability, availability, maintainability and safety
At Bombardier Transportation, we have the services, skills and expertise to deliver efficient, competitive and sustainable rail operations. We help our customers minimize operational costs and maximize revenue generation over an extended asset lifetime, while ensuring the highest levels of passenger safety and comfort.
