Metra issues RFP for double-deck coaches
Tuesday, February 02, 2016



NORTHEAST Illinois Regional Commuter Railroad (Metra) issued a request for proposals (RFP) on February 2 for a contract to supply up to 367 double-deck coaches as part of its 10-year $US 2.4bn plan to modernise Chicago's commuter rail network, which was adopted by the Metra board in 2014

The contract has an estimated value of up to $US 1.3bn and the vehicles are due to be delivered over a seven-year period from 2018. With the exception of EMU cars for Metra Electric, the coaches will be the first additions to Metra's passenger rolling stock fleet since 2006

Construction on double-tracking on South Shore line between Gary and Michigan City could begin in 2019.

The line is currently only double-tracked from Chicago to Tennessee Street in Gary.
