Translink—Vancouver, British Columbia

Translink has posted an RFP for 205 new cars for the Skytrain Expo & Millenium Lines, to form 41 new five car open-gangway trains.

Five car trains will be the first to fill out the system's platform capacity, and stands as the largest ever order, and will be for the purpose of both system expansion and to replace the aging fleet of Mark I cars, the first of which were delivered in 1985.

Maybe this explains why Bombardier and Thunder Bay have been making so much public noise about buy Canadian for the last couple of weeks.

totally. Everyone in Canadian transit is tired of their B*S*.

Translink supposedly only got reasonably well-put-together Mark III due to intensive handholding during the construction and testing process
