Bombardier Toronto Streetcars Problems Continue

Bombardier’s head of transportation appeared at a Toronto Transit
Commission board meeting to offer his apologies for the latest
problems with the streetcars his company delivered to the city.

The transit authority has said the first 67 of 89 streetcars it
ordered would be sent back for preventative repairs, to ensure their
30-year life span.

Benoit Broissoit, president of Bombardier Transportation for the
Americas, told the board yesterday that his Montreal-based company
understands and shares the disappointment.

He says issues like these are not uncommon in the industry and
does not make Bombardier’s cars any worse than others.
