Re: Canada PTMZ

TORONTO — The Toronto Transit Commission has placed an order for 110 low-floor transit buses with the subsidiary of NFI Group for an undisclosed price.

The coach manufacturer says up to 30 buses will be delivered by ARBOC Specialty Vehicles, LLC this year with the remaining 80 vehicles added in 2022.

The order will be used to update the TTC’s Wheel-Trans fleet which is used for seniors and persons with disabilities.

The contract was placed through ARBOC’s Canadian distributor, Creative Carriage Ltd., using the Government of Ontario’s Metrolinx Transit Procurement Initiative.

The contract from Canada’s largest transit authority follows one in 2019 for up to 40 Xcelsior 40-foot battery-electric buses, of which half have already been delivered.

The TTC is North America’s third-largest transit system with subways, streetcars and more than 140 bus routes using about 2,400 vehicles that serve nearly 1.7 million passengers on an average weekday

Re: Canada PTMZ

The last section of track of the Eglinton Crosstown LRT has been laid on November 1, when Crosslinx Transit Solutions constructor fastened the final clip, reaching a 100 per cent rail installation for the new transit line in Toronto.

To mark the achievement, the clip was special gold-painted and was installed at Eglinton Station, located at the intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue. With that last clip, all of the tracks along the LRT are now in place between Mount Dennis Station in the west and Kennedy Station in the east.

Within the next period, the light rail vehicles will test the infrastructure across the entire line.

Installation of the overhead catenary system, train signals, communications systems, and other features to enable safe train movement will continue into 2022.




The Eglinton Crosstown LRT project covered the construction of a 19 km line (installation of 40 km of tracks) including a 10 km underground section between Keele Street and Laird Drive. The line has 25 stops and stations, offering connection to 54 bus routes, three TTC metro stations and various GO Transit lines providing important transit connections. The project also includes a maintenance and storage facility at Weston Road.

In 2015, Metrolinx and Infrastructure Ontario awarded Crosslinx Transit Solutions a CAD 9.1 billion (USD 7.3 billion, in current prices) design, build, finance and maintenance contract for the project.

The new light rail line is expected to be completed in 2022 providing up to 60% faster transport services than current travel times.

The new line will be extended towards west, forming the co-called Eglinton Crosstown West Extension (ECWE) for which this year a USD 605 million contract was awarded for the construction of its tunnels. The line will be up to 13.9 km-long with more than 10 stations providing a continuous rapid transit line into Mississauga. 4.7 km of the line would provide transport connection to the Pearson Airport in Toronto. The ECWE will travel underground from Mount Dennis Station onto an elevated guideway between Jane Street and Scarlett Road, then continuing underground to Renforth Drive.

Re: Canada PTMZ

CAF has been selected for the design, manufacture and commissioning of 28 light rail vehicles for Calgary Green LRT Line. The contract also includes the delivery of depot parts, special tools and testing equipment as well as the TSMSSA service (Technical Support and Maintenance Spares Supply Agreement).

The agreement with the City of Calgary also includes an option for 24 additional vehicles as well as the extension of the TSMSSA service.

EUR 300 million is the estimated value of the contract which includes the base order and all additional options.

“Awarding this contract is a major project milestone and step forward in delivering Calgary’s next LRT. CAF’s proposal met all of the City’s technical and commercial requirements and their Urbos,” Darshpreet Bhatti, the Green Line CEO said.

The LRV is part of Urbos tram platform and will comprise of 7 modules along a length of 42 metres. With a capacity to carry 288 passengers, 73 of which will be seated, its cutting-edge design will guarantee excellent user safety and comfort, with other standout features being vehicle accessibility and spaciousness.

The low-floor LRVs will be adapted for passengers with reduced mobility improving accessibility, reducing station footprint and enhance safety for pedestrians and vehicles.

Calgary Green LRT Line, a 46 km-long line crossing the city on north-south axis, will be constructed in some phases. The first stage covers the construction of 20 km double track and 15 stations from Shepard to Eau Claire which includes two tunnels and 10 bridges. The first section will provide seamless connections with the existing Red and Blue LRT lines and four MAX BRT routes. Phase 1 of Green Line will connect more than 55,000 riders to Calgary’s transit network and create almost 20,000 jobs throughout construction.

The Phase 2 of the LRT will link Eau Claire to 16 Avenue N.

The line has CAD 4.9 billion (USD 3.9 billion) in funding commitments from the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and the City of Calgary. In July, the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau announced a CAD 1.53 billion (USD 1.2 billion) investment for the construction of the new line.
