Bombardier Transportation at UITP 2013

Stepping into the future

At Bombardier Transportation, we're building the future of modern public transportation. We call it the Evolution of Mobility and it's what we're all about.

Around the globe, public transport operators and city leaders are facing the 21st-century challenges of rapid urbanization and economic uncertainty. That's why they're seeking solutions capable of moving more people and goods than ever—cost effectively, efficiently and sustainably.

As the world's rail technology leader, we're tackling these mobility challenges while reducing cities' dependency on cars. We're developing mass transit solutions that are:

  • smarter
  • cost reducing
  • revenue boosting
  • quality-of-life enhancing
  • more environmentally friendly

Visit us at UITP 2013
At the 60th UITP congress and exhibition, we're showcasing the leading-edge mass transit and e-mobility technologies in our pipeline for urban areas and longer journeys too. Best-fit mobility solutions that overcome crippling traffic, restore freedom of movement and help cities worldwide breathe.

From monorails, metro systems and commuter trains running through buildings, at-grade, elevated or underground, to next-generation solutions for electric vehicles—we're inviting you to step into the future today.

Discover our newest, smartest solutions firsthand at booth 2A600 in Hall 2 and on the outdoor test track. Our friendly experts will be waiting to answer your questions.

Higher efficiency: improved energy consumption, reliability, availability and maintainability
Our latest vehicles and technologies drive down energy consumption while improving reliability, availability and maintainability. Now being delivered on the Singapore Downtown line, our fully automated driverless MOVIA metro vehicles offer superior reliability, safety and lifecycle costs.

Currently being tested in Europe and Asia, our ZEFIRO trains deliver the lowest energy consumption per seat of any very high speed train. Higher efficiency also means proactive maintenance with our ORBITA real-time data gathering and diagnostic technology. Watch ORBITA in action at the Olympic Games 2012 in London.

Higher capacity: more passengers, reduced headway and faster journeys
To optimize operating costs, our newest solutions carry more passengers, decrease headways and accelerate journey times. Global economic hubs like São Paulo are about to move half a million passengers safely and reliably every day with our game-changing INNOVIA Monorail 300 system. The TWINDEXX double-deck intercity and regional trains ramp up capacity and speed while improving efficiency, flexibility and passenger comfort.

In metro systems, our CITYFLO 650 mass transit solution enables headways of less than 60 seconds and increased passenger capacity. It's already operating in cities around the world, such as Madrid, where a 30% rise in capacity has been seen, and is coming soon to São Paulo and London.

E-mobility: complete charging, battery and propulsion & control package for zero-emission mobility
In cities, the future of mobility is e-mobility. It's key to shifting from fossil fuels to cleaner energy sources.

Our century-plus experience in electric mobility lies behind Bombardier's revolutionary e-mobility solutions. Our PRIMOVE wireless charging system and our new high-power PRIMOVE battery powers rail vehicles including our FLEXITY trams along with electric cars, trucks and buses. In Germany, passengers will enjoy the benefits of quiet, CO2-free bus rides as early as the fourth quarter of 2013.

We're also breaking new grounds with our MITRAC e-bus propulsion and control systems for electric buses. With MITRAC e-bus systems we're on the verge of offering turnkey electrical mobility solutions with smart interfaces for operators and bus manufacturers.

Join us for a "Meet & Greet" at the Bombardier stand with our customers, the transit operators Braunschweiger Verkehrs-AG and Rhein Neckar Verkehr-GmbH, on Monday, May 27 from 3.30pm - 4.00pm and on Tuesday, May 28 from 12.30pm - 13.00pm.

Sustainability: 15 innovative green transport solutions
Sustainability is embedded in our products with our proven ECO4 portfolio of 15 innovative technologies. It's the industry's most comprehensive and flexible suite of green transport solutions.

Our 95% recyclable OMNEO train is the world's first articulated double-deck Electric Multiple Unit. It integrates the MITRAC Permanent Magnet Motor to save energy through increased efficiency and reduced vehicle weight. Our advanced FLEXX Urban 3000 platform is the market's most environmentally friendly low-floor bogie. It combines standardization with flexible options for significant lifecycle benefits.
