Bombardier Transportation, a division of Bombardier Inc., is a global mobility solutions provider leading the way with the industry’s broadest portfolio.
Bombardier cover the full spectrum of rail solutions, ranging from trains to sub-systems and signalling to complete turnkey transport systems, e-mobility technology and data-driven maintenance services. Combining technology and performance with empathy, Bombardier Transportation continuously breaks new ground in sustainable mobility by providing integrated solutions that create substantial benefits for operators, passengers and the environment.
Bombardier draws on its technological expertise and innovative capabilities to meet the current and future needs of operators and passengers. Its urban rolling stock solutions cover a whole range of services, including:
Commuter Trains: Bombardier’s commuter transport solutions are helping cities all over the world to grow sustainably, accommodate increasing numbers of commuters and alleviate traffic congestion. These trains achieve efficient journey times despite frequent stops while ensuring excellent availability and minimising interruptions.
Metro Trains: As a leading metro solutions provider, Bombardier is shaping the future of mass transit and daily commutes. Our high-tech, highly efficient MOVIA metros deliver rapid, reliable and cost-effective transport solutions around the globe.
Tram and Light Rail Vehicles: As a market leader in the tram and light rail vehicle (LRV) segment, Bombardier Transportation offers modern mobility solutions for the modern-day city, with FLEXITY trams. This comprehensive product portfolio includes 100 per cent low-floor trams, 70 per cent low-floor trams, as well as proven dual-system solutions.
Driverless Transportation: The INNOVIA APM 300 system is a driverless transportation system specially designed to serve airports and dense urban areas. It offers quick, comfortable and convenient service for commuters within cities, to and from airports or between airport terminals.
Monorail Systems: From dense inner-city routes to airport links, monorail systems transform urban areas. Fast and cost-effective to build, the driverless INNOVIA monorail 300 system offers comfortable mass-transit capacity with iconic aesthetics.
Rail operators are faced with a difficult challenge: how to deliver cost-effective mobility in an environment of strong competition, rising energy costs and growing demand. Bombardier has responded to this challenge by working with rail operators, suppliers and passengers to develop its latest generation of main line trains. Bombardier’s mainline rolling stock include:
High-Speed Trains: Fast, safe, reliable and comfortable, high-speed trains now rival air travel as an efficient means of transportation for long distances. The ZEFIRO high-speed (HS) and very high-speed (VHS) train family takes rail transport to the next level in terms of performance and efficiency.
Regional Trains: Reliable regional trains play an important role in the growth of cities, towns and regions. Regional connections can help ease the pressure on inner-city commuter networks, foster out-of-city development and enhance regional tourism.
Intercity Trains: Bombardier’s intercity trains provide comfortable, safe and environmentally-friendly connections between densely populated areas.
Electric and Diesel-Electric Locomotives: Expertise eight years ahead of its time – proven and innovative – that’s the TRAXX locomotive portfolio, with more than 2,200 locomotives sold worldwide.
CITYFLO solutions offer the full range of automatic train control (ATC) technologies and operating modes for all mass transit operations. From trams to light rail vehicles, monorails and high-capacity metros, CITYFLO delivers the highest levels of safety while meeting operator demand for flexible, high-performance and cost-effective solutions.
Bombardier also delivers complete mainline systems, sub-systems and individual products to railway operators and infrastructures all over the world. To ensure low lifecycle cost, our mainline signalling solution INTERFLO is continuously improved by utilising well-defined, proven hardware and software components and modules across our applications
Bombardier leads the way in providing ERTMS technology as part of its INTERFLO range of mainline solutions. The INTERFLO 250, 450 and 550 are Bombardier’s scalable European Rail Traffic Management Systems (ERTMS) mainline scalable solutions for Level 1, 2 and 3 respectively, suitable for secondary and regional lines and high speed and commuter lines.
Bombardier’s pioneering advances in communications-based train control (CBTC) systems are supporting system optimisation and upgrades globally providing a new dimension in overlay capability and tackling the capacity challenge. These systems can be deployed quickly, allowing some of the world’s largest cities to meet their transportation needs – rapidly and reliably. CBTC benefits:
OPTIFLO from Bombardier – A comprehensive set of rail control service solutions tailored to address the challenges faced by railway infrastructure owners and operators.
While CITIFLO, INTERFLO and Onboard product families ensure excellent performance to deliver the needed capacity, OPTIFLO service solutions are designed to maintain the performance throughout the life cycle.
Combining the experience Bombardier has gained throughout decades of modernising and maintaining signalling systems with the possibilities enabled by digitalisation and data analytics allowed us to create a comprehensive suite of service modules tailored to address the challenges faced by railway infrastructure owners and operators.
Poland’s accession to the EU in 2004 triggered mass economic investment, including in the country’s railway infrastructure and rolling stock.
