June 14 (Reuters) - Bombardier Inc's train unit signed a contract with the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) to deliver 260 new rail cars for $631 million.

Delivery of 10 pilot cars is scheduled to take place in the spring of 2015.

Bombardier's shares closed at C$3.81 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Thursday.
