Reception and acceptation of the 54th AZUR train
The STM is announcing that it has received and accepted the 54th AZUR train. This completes the delivery of the trains set out in the contract signed with the Bombardier-Alstom consortium (CBA) in October 2010, as per the initial schedule.
As concerns the provisions of the contractual amendment for the acquisition of 17 additional trains, CBA has confirmed the majority of its suppliers, and the schedule for this second phase still calls for the first train to be delivered in spring 2020 and the last in fall 2021. Funded by the provincial and federal governments, the acquisition of these modern, efficient and more comfortable AZUR trains will be a major addition to the STM’s 2025 plan for public transit in the greater Montréal area.
The addition of these trains, which have 8% more space and better ventilation, will allow us to considerably improve our customers’ travel experience. Eventually, 90% of trains running on the Green line will be AZUR trains.
