For many years now, Bombardier have been supplying rolling stock to British Columbia, and now it have began a partnership with TransLink. With the partnership, they have launched crewing services for TransLink’s West Coast Express rail system, located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia.
As part of the partnership Bombardier will provide crews for the West Coast Express BOMBARDIER commuter fleet of 44 vehicles. There is already nearly 1,200 cars in operation across the US and Canada.
Safe, reliable and courteous service is what our West Coast Express customers have come to expect, said Fred Cummings, President and General Manager of British Columbia Rapid Transit Co. Ltd (BCRTC). BCRTC is an operating subsidiary of TransLink, the regional transportation funding and planning authority, and is responsible for West Coast Express.
West Coast Express routinely boasts the highest customer service ratings in our regional transportation network, and we look forward to continuing that trend with Bombardier providing crewing services, said Cummings.
Bombardier is proud to support and partner with West Coast Express in its efforts to further enhance its reputation for reliability and outstanding customer service, said Raymond Bachant, President, Bombardier Transportation Americas. All our employees are committed to offering safe, high-quality, on-time train performance to the passengers of West Coast Express, he added.
