Bombardier to build Evergreen Line cars

The Evergreen Line will run on Bombardier cars.

Monday, the provincial government announced a contract with Bombardier Transportation to supply 28 SkyTrain cars for the new Evergreen Line, as well as the existing Expo and Millennium Lines, at a cost of $90.7 million.

The cars will be operated by TransLink once construction of the Evergreen Line is complete in 2016.

The Evergreen Line will link Burnaby, Port Moody and Coquitlam with an 11-kilometre advanced light rapid transit line between Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby and Douglas College in Coquitlam.

Bombardier was selected to supply the cars after successfully responding to a Request for Expressions of Interest in February 2012.

SNC-Lavalin Inc. has been selected as the preferred proponent to work with the B.C. government to finalize the agreement to design, build and finance the Evergreen Line project.
