TTC Still Frustrated With Bombardier

Posted on Thursday, October 12, 2017 16:47 PM

The Toronto Transit Commission says it’s disappointed and frustrated by delays in street cars from Thunder Bay’s Bombardier plant. 

70 cars were to be delivered by the end of this year and that has been lowered to 65. 

TTC officials say there should be 146 streetcars on the road today instead of just 45. 

They are pursuing a 50 million dollar legal claim against Bombardier for its ongoing failure to meet delivery targets. 

The TTC Board has also directed staff to pursue other potential suppliers for future streetcar orders.
