Bombardier to Supply Light Rail Vehicles in Guadalajara, Mexico

Bombardier Transportation has won an order from the Electric Urban Train System of Guadalajara (SITEUR) to supply 12 Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) of the TEG-15 model, consisting of two cars each, that will run in Line One of SITEUR in Guadalajara.

The 29.56 metres long articulated carbon steel trams will run in pairs and are designed for a maximum capacity of 48 seated passengers and more than 300 standing passengers per vehicle.

 The new vehicles will be mechanically, electrically and pneumatically compatible with TEG-90 vehicles from SITEUR and will run to a maximum speed of 80 kilometres per hour.

 The new LRVs design will be based on the existing fleet of TE-12 vehicles that were previously supplied by Bombardier to the Electric Transport Services of Mexico City (Servicio de Transportes Elctricos del Distrito Federal, STEDF) in 2014, with a restyled end bonnet design.

As an innovation driver, Bombardier has developed many new features on the vehicles in order to improve the experience for all the people who use the Guadalajara public transit system every day. As part of the innovations, the trains will have an On Board Video Recording System (OVRS), new fire and smoke detection system, Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and will be accessible to wheelchairs, said Raymond Bachant, President, Bombardier Transportation, Americas Division.

The teams of Bombardier Transportations facility in Ciudad Sahagn, State of Hidalgo, are leading the development of the process, from design and engineering to complete production and putting the vehicles into service.

The contract is valued at approximately 752 million Mexican pesos (US$44 million).
