DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - March 7, 2016) - Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation is an exhibitor at the 10th edition of Middle East Rail in Dubai on March 8 and 9. This major rail infrastructure event provides an important platform for Bombardier to meet with major rail operators and transport ministries to present its comprehensive portfolio of advanced mobility solutions for cities and airports.

"At Bombardier, we're redefining the way people move with our innovative mobility solutions for cities and airports, from e-mobility to driverless automated people movers, metros and elevated monorail systems," said Philippe Casgrain, Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Systems Division at Bombardier Transportation. He added, "Bombardier is already a major rail infrastructure provider in the Middle East, delivering turnkey transit systems and rail projects in this dynamic region."

On February 24, 2016, the new BOMBARDIER INNOVIA APM 300 automated people mover system at the Dubai International Airport opened. It is providing a dedicated service for airline passengers travelling between the newly renovated Terminal 1 and the new Concourse D. The driverless APM system operates with the service-proven BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 communications-based train control (CBTC) technology, known for its high reliability, safety and short headways between trains.

Also for the Middle East, Bombardier, as a member of the ArRiyadh New Mobility Consortium, is designing and building 47 two-car driverless BOMBARDIER INNOVIA Metro 300 trains for the prestigious Riyadh Metro Line 3 (Orange). For the Haramain High Speed Railway, Bombardier is supplying its BOMBARDIER MITRAC 3000 propulsion package and BOMBARDIER FLEXX speed bogies for the powerheads of the 35 very high speed trains (for speeds up to 330 km/h) from Talgo SA.
