 Jayaram Naidu, Vice President of Southeast Asia, Bombardier Transportation, said, “This latest contract shows the trust LTA has in us and further deepens our long-term presence in this important market. Bombardier started delivering Innovia APM 100s for Bukit Panjang Line in 1999 and we are ready to continue meeting Singapore’s mobility needs with our high-performance rail vehicles, signalling systems and integrated fleet support.”

Since 2012, Bombardier has delivered 276 driverless Bombardier Movia Metro cars for Singapore’s Downtown Line in addition to 13 driverless INNOVIA APM 100 cars for the Bukit Panjang LRT.

 Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and LRT networks have a combined ridership of over three million passengers daily and LTA is seeking to strengthen the country’s rail infrastructure with the target to expand the rail network to 360km by 2030.
