BERLIN, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/13 -- 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

years of service. 
Bombardier's scope of work for the SunRail commuter rail service will

the United States and Canada.
