First introduced in 1978, the BOMBARDIER BiLevel car is the most popular double-deck commuter rail car in North America. Today, nearly 1,200 BiLevel cars are in operation at, or on order with, transit authorities in 14 cities across the United States and Canada. One of the keys to the success of the BiLevel car has been its ability to adapt to meet changing needs and requirements. The next step in that evolution is a BiLevel cab car equipped with a Crash Energy Management system, designed with an aerodynamic full-width cab that ofers improved positioning and ergonomics for the engineer, and ready for the installation of PTC equipment. Upgrades to door and air-conditioning systems, increases in energy efciency, and enhancements to passenger comfort are among other advancements making the BiLevel car better than ever.
