                       MOVIA Metro Fleet for Stockholm

- Groundbreaking technology for high capacity and passenger comfort will boost
Stockholm metro rail network

- Latest flagship order of BOMBARDIER MOVIA metros in Sweden strengthens
position in the international metro market

- Order valued at approximately 5.1 billion SEK affirms Bombardier's strong
position in the Swedish market and as a worldwide metro provider

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - June 6, 2013) - Rail technology leader
Bombardier Transportation announced today that it has won an order from SL,
the Stockholm Public Transport Authority, to deliver the new generation C30
metro fleet for Stockholm, Sweden, with a contract to provide 96 MOVIA metro
vehicles. The contract includes an option for up to 80 further vehicles. The
firm order is valued at approximately 5.1 billion SEK (590 million euro, $771
million US).

Based on the highly successful MOVIA metro platform, which Bombardier has
delivered to major cities worldwide from New York to London to Singapore, the
new high-technology MOVIA C30 metros have been customised to meet the specific
requirements of SL for high availability, accessibility, reliability and
passenger comfort. The new fleet will run on the Red Line connecting
Stockholm's north-eastern and south-western suburbs directly with the city
centre. The four-car vehicles, fitted with a driver's cab at each end, are
also equipped with advanced driverless functionality.

The new air-conditioned MOVIA C30 metros offer improved access for passengers
with restricted mobility. The vehicles feature advanced passenger information
systems and fulfil the highest environmental standards regarding energy
consumption and choice of almost entirely recyclable materials. Delivery is
scheduled to start in November 2016 with the start of traffic scheduled in
early 2017.

The order confirms Bombardier's leadership in providing innovative,
sustainable metro solutions worldwide. Bombardier MOVIA metros are high-tech,
high capacity trains that deliver rapid, reliable and cost-effective transport
for more than seven billion passenger trips globally every year, including
major cities like Montréal, Berlin, Shanghai and New Delhi, with new automated
vehicles also entering service in Singapore. Bombardier has sold more than
4,000 MOVIA metro cars to date and they travel an average of about 120,000 km
per year.

With the new MOVIA C30 metro, SL is once again proving its leadership as a
modern operator. The vehicles' passenger comfort, extra capacity and design
fit perfectly into a city that is a trend-setter for the entire world. They
are equipped with a number of advanced technical features including the
extremely energy efficient BOMBARDIERFLEXX Eco bogies that also reduce
maintenance costs and the well-proven BOMBARDIER MITRAC propulsion system.
These features contribute to maximum passenger capacity with minimal energy
consumption and low noise.

The vehicles will travel around 150,000 km per year and will offer the system
capacity to transport up to 60,000 passengers per hour. Bombardier will also
provide its BOMBARDIER ORBIFLO intelligent train to wayside communication
system, which is linked to the driverless feature and also provides real-time
service information and passenger service updates.

Bombardier has supplied metro cars to Stockholm for over 60 years, including
the C20 series that forms the backbone of the Stockholm metro fleet. The new
generation C30 vehicles bring the latest metro technology to enhance the
capacity and performance of the city's transport system.
