Static testing of the first pilot vehicle has successfully demonstrated brake and high-voltage operation, as well as confirmed the functionality of major subsystems.

Bombardier is ready to ship the second pilot vehicle from its Thunder Bay facility to its Kingston LRV Centre of Excellence, in Ontario, where it will begin dynamic testing later this spring. This is a significant milestone in the overall testing program. The dynamic testing will be conducted on the test track at Bombardier’s Kingston facility that was recently upgraded to support the testing program as the Metrolinx rails are not ready to allow testing.
Following the arrival of the second pilot vehicle in Kingston, the first pilot vehicle will be sent to Ottawa to undergo climate testing at the National Research Council of Canada facility.
[quote font_size=”16″ arrow=”yes”]“These actions clearly demonstrate that Bombardier is fully capable of delivering the LRVs necessary to support namely the Eglinton Crosstown project,” said Mark McGregor, Project Manager for Bombardier Transportation, in Ontario. “We are confident that our vehicles will be ready well before the tracks, and we look forward to delivering world class vehicles to support the transportation needs of the people of Toronto and the Region of Waterloo.”[/quote]
