Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation, as part of TransEd Partners,
has been awarded a contract for the Valley Line LRT in Edmonton, Alberta. The
TransEd team is comprised of Bombardier, Bechtel, EllisDon and Fengate.
Bombardier is responsible for the design and supply of the vehicles,
signalling, communications, power supply and distribution, overhead catenary
system, and related depot equipment. Bombardier's scope is valued at
approximately $391 million CDN ($280 million US, 247 million euro).

The Valley Line LRT project is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) that
includes a five-year Design-Build stage and a 30-year operation and
maintenance (O&M) term. Bombardier brings to this project its extensive
experience in delivering large, complex PPP projects in other countries.

Stage 1 of the Valley Line LRT includes a southeast to downtown rail line with
11 stops and one station. BOMBARDIER FLEXITY light rail vehicles will each
carry 275 passengers along the 13 km system. These 100% low-floor vehicles
allow for easy access for all passengers and provide a smooth and comfortable
ride. Bombardier has sold more than 1,500 FLEXITY 100% low-floor trams to
date. About 5,000 Bombardier trams and LRVs are in revenue service or on
order in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

Bombardier will also lead the performance of the 30-year Operations,
Maintenance and Rehabilitation scope of work for the entire Edmonton Valley
Line System. This further emphasizes Bombardier's leadership as a provider of
passenger rail services in the Americas and worldwide. It will bring to the
team its strong services portfolio to complement its innovative FLEXITY light

the highest levels of safety, customer service, on-time performance, fleet
availability and reliability.
