22/01/2010 11:04:00

La gente partecipa ai festeggiamenti e usufruisce di 60 giorni di corse gratuite sul primo tram con pianale interamente ribassato del Nord America

BERLINO, GERMANIA--(Marketwire - 21 gennaio 2010) - Oggi, Raymond Bachant, presidente di Bombardier Transportation North America e Gregor Robertson, sindaco della città di Vancouver, hanno inaugurato insieme la Olympic Line durante un evento organizzato a Vancouver, Canada. I due tram BOMBARDIER FLEXITY, fiore all'occhiello della Olympic Line, sono giunti a Vancouver da Bruxelles (Belgio) il 7 dicembre 2009, dopo un viaggio via mare di due mesi.

Inviting the public and distinguished guests to experience the first 100% low-floor streetcar in North America, Raymond Bachant said: "Bombardier is proud of its partnership with the City of Vancouver whose vision of sustainable development is a model for cities in North America. We are confident that these award-win ning vehicles will demonstrate the potential role that streetcars could play in the future of transportation in Metro Vancouver."

Kris Lauwers, Deputy General Manager of the Brussels Transport Company STIB (Societe des Transports Intercommunaux de Bruxelles) commented: "To Metro Vancouver, I bring warm greetings from the citizens of Brussels and the Brussels Transport Company. Brussels has a long tradition of trams and has always been loyal to this mode of transport. That's why we are delighted to support this unique demonstration project with our award-winning vehicles, hugely popular with our passengers."

Bombardier Transportation and the City of Vanouver are co-sponsors of the 1.8-kilometre Olympic Line where Bombardier is operating two BOMBARDIER FLEXITY streetcars. Free service will be provided 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, between January 21 and March 21, 2010. The vehicles, on loan from the Brussels Transport Company STIB (Societe des Transports Interco mmunaux de Bruxelles), feature easy access for all passengers, wide doors, large windows, and a beautifully-finished interior.

More than 1,500 FLEXITY vehicles are in service around the world. Overall, more than 2,800 Bombardier trams and light rail vehicles operate or are on order in 100 cities across Europe, Australia and North America.
