History: The Bombardier MultiLevel Coach is a bi-level passenger rail car manufactured by Bombardier for use on commuter rail lines. It started service in 2006 and is still being produced as of 2012.
The coaches have a two-by-two seating arrangement and more knee and leg room than single level coaches. The seats are also bigger and it has 15-30% more seating than on single level coaches. The intermediate levels have 5 inward-facing flip-up seats on each side, for wheelchairs or bicycles. On cab cars, a large equipment locker behind the cab replaces one row of seats. There are large side doors at intermediate levels, and end doors, except at the cab position on cab cars. The end doors of NJ Transit coaches have stepwell traps, allowing these doors to be used for both high and low-platform loading. AMT coaches have one-piece end doors without traps, which can be used only for low-platform loading. There are also an automated announcement system and LED destination screens.
Bombardier entered the U.S. rail transportation market in 1976 and won its first major U.S. contract for 825 subway cars in New York City in 1982. Today, Bombardier's rail business employs U.S. workers in locations across 12 states. This includes two manufacturing sites outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that build rail products for both domestic and export markets, and one in Plattsburgh, New York, that builds rail vehicles for U.S. customers.
Bombardier also operates a network of maintenance centers supporting commuter rail fleets in Baltimore, Los Angeles, Orlando, Miami, and San Diego. We provide operations and maintenance services for a light rail fleet in southern New Jersey as well. We manage operations and maintenance services for driverless transit systems in 14 U.S. cities, and have a vehicle and component refurbishment center in New York. Our U.S.-based parts distribution center for rail is in Plattsburgh, New York.
