Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation today announced that French
National Railway Company, Societe nationale des chemins de fer francais
(SNCF), has placed an order for 52 additional Francilien Electric Multiple
Unit (EMU) commuter trains. The order, financed by Ile-de-France's transport
authority Syndicat des transports d'Ile-de-France (STIF), is valued at
approximately 348 million euro ($370 million US) and is a call off from a
contract signed in 2006 with SNCF for a maximum of 372 trains. The first
trains of this order will be delivered in early 2018 and will operate from
the Paris Saint Lazare Station as part of the STIF transportation
modernisation plan.

"The Francilien, specially designed and manufactured for the Ile-de-France at
our site in Crespin, Hauts-de-France, is a reliable, high performing train
that meets ongoing challenges experienced in such densely populated areas",
stated Laurent Bouyer, President, Bombardier Transportation France. "These
modern trains offer room for up to 1,000 people with wide doors for easy
accessibility and open gangways that increase passenger flow. All these
features are contributing greatly to the punctuality of the service."

To date there are almost 200 Francilien trains in service, testimony to the
confidence in Bombardier to deliver reliable products as part of its ongoing
long term partnership with the French Railways and the STIF. The Francilien
fleet boasts the highest performance rates on SNCF's Transilien network. As
an innovation driver, from the start of the project, Bombardier focused on
passenger needs and designed a modern spacious commuter train with a high
capacity. It is equipped with modern security systems and the latest energy
efficient and intelligent technologies that decrease the footprint on the
environment.

Bombardier's site in Crespin, France's largest industrial rail site, designs,
builds and operates innovative trains, meeting daily transport needs. The
site built its reputation on the AGC regional trains and is now delivering
two major projects: the Francilien commuter train for the Ile de France
Region and the BOMBARDIER OMNEO double deck platform which includes the Regio
2N and the OMNEO Premium intercity train.

Nearly 1,000 "made in Hauts-de-France" Bombardier trains operate daily,
offering reliable and comfortable journeys to passengers. In 2015, Bombardier
trains travelled 150 million kilometers throughout France, which is
equivalent to 550 000 private cars on the roads to ensure these journeys.
