The Bombardier MultiLevel Coach[1] 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 2014.

Overview[edit]

There are 589 of these coaches in service as of 2014 on NJ Transit and Agence Metropolitaine de Transport (AMT) of Montreal rail lines. NJT received 429 cars, including 62 cab cars, while AMT received 160 cars, including 26 cab cars. AMT's initial order in 2007 was for 60 coaches, with options for a further 100, since fully exercised.

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 for high-platform loading, 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.

MARC, which operates commuter rail service in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area has also ordered 54 of the cars using the option from the latest NJ Transit order. The MARC order consists of 39 trailers and 15 cab cars. Delivery is scheduled to begin in 2013.[2]
