The Jalisco state government has selected Bombardier as preferred bidder for a contract to supply 12 two-car trainsets for Line 1 of the Guadalajara light rail system operated by SITEUR. According to the state government, 13 companies responded to the call for tenders where the winning bid of 752⋅2m pesos represents a saving of 24% on the expected cost.
With deliveries due to commence in 2017, the new trains are expected to increase peak capacity by 50% on Line 1, compatible with the existing fleet and enabling services to carry up to 900 passengers. Following a site visit last month, SITEUR Director General Rodolfo Guadalajara Gutiérrez reported that infrastructure work to upgrade and extend Line 1 was 52% complete.
