Mobility technology leader Bombardier Transportation will present its innovative rail products and services at Exporail, the 18th Congress of the Mexican Association of Railroads. The event will take place in Mexico City, Mexico on March 26 and 27.
“We are proud to present Bombardier’s latest innovations for sustainable mobility at the Exporail congress and exhibition, including our battery-operated electro-hybrid train,” said Elliot G. (Lee) Sander, President, Americas Region, Bombardier Transportation. “Under our slogan ‘Together we move’, we will showcase our complete value chain of high performing mobility solutions for today’s growing cities including metro, light rail, commuter and monorail applications as well as our full scope of services designed to help customers minimize their operational costs and maximize their revenues.”
The innovative battery-powered train operates emission-free, thereby making a significant contribution towards environmentally-friendly mobility. The train can be used to bridge non-electrified lines and replace diesel trains with clean battery-powered vehicles.
