  BERLIN, GERMANY, Mar 04 (MARKET WIRE) --
Bombardier Transportation publicly refutes the claims of Deutsche Bahn
regarding the S-Bahn Berlin 481 series as without merit and the
allegations as defamatory. Bombardier reserves all its rights with regard
to these defamatory accusations.

    General warranty for the S-Bahn Berlin 481 series ended in 2007 by mutual
agreement. Up to that time, availability had regularly exceeded 98% - a
strong performance compared to similar rail systems in Europe. From the
start, S-Bahn Berlin has been responsible for its own maintenance.
Bombardier Transportation has no contractual obligations regarding the
maintenance and repair of the 481 series.

    Bombardier Transportation believes that prolonged litigation is not in
the interests of either company and remains open to dialogue with
Deutsche Bahn.
