Bombardier Wins Rail Operations and Maintenance Contract in Florida

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - April 15, 2013) - Rail technology leader
Bombardier Transportation announced today that it has signed a contract with
the State of Florida Department of Transportation to provide operations and
maintenance services for the Central Florida Commuter Rail Transit project
(also known as SunRail). The contract is valued at approximately $195 million
US ($199 million CAD, 149 million euro), and includes mobilization activities
followed by 10 years of service.

Bombardier's scope of work for the SunRail commuter rail service will include
operations, dispatching, fleet maintenance, track maintenance, customer
service, station platform and facility maintenance, and material supply. The
Bombardier team will mobilize for service over the coming months and assume
its operations and maintenance responsibilities in the spring of 2014.

The fleet for the SunRail service will include 20 BOMBARDIER BiLevel commuter
rail cars that Bombardier will begin delivering this spring. Over 1,000
Bombardier BiLevel cars are already in operation across the United States and
Canada.

"We are proud to be part of this very important expansion of public transit in
Central Florida, which will increase people's mobility, provide a regional
transportation alternative to Central Florida's congested roads, and benefit
the regional economy," said Raymond Bachant, President, Bombardier
Transportation North America. "This new agreement confirms Bombardier's
leadership position as a provider of passenger rail equipment and services in
North America and worldwide. Our strong services portfolio complements our
innovative products and technologies, allowing us to form a true partnership
with our customers throughout the entire product life cycle and to ensure the
highest levels of safety, customer service, on-time performance, fleet
availability and reliability."

Bombardier has a long-standing track record of providing operations and
maintenance services to transit systems across North America including Agence
Metropolitaine de Transport in Montreal, GO Transit in Toronto, the
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, New Jersey Transit, North County
Transit District in California, OC Transpo in Ottawa, the South Florida
Regional Transit Authority, the Southern California Regional Rail Authority,
