Alstom will supply 6 additional Vancouver SkyTrain Mark V trains

“We’re proud and honoured of the continued confidence of TransLink,” says Michael Keroullé, President & CEO Alstom Americas. “This additional order of our made-in-Canada vehicles, specifically designed for Vancouver SkyTrain, will help improve daily commutes in the Vancouver Greater Area.”

The Mark V design features consist of five-car sets, all internally open-ended with walk-through carriages. They have mostly forward-facing seating and include more space for bikes, luggage, and leaning pads. The new digital interior information displays will provide riders with improved onboard transit alerts. Strip indicator lights at the doors will assist people who have hearing loss by flashing when doors close, fault warnings are issued, or when emergency brakes are deployed.

The Mark V trains will operate with door chimes and on-train announcements to assist customers who are visually impaired. Alstom is currently supplying 41 Mark V trains (205 railcars) to TransLink. The first trains have been delivered to Vancouver in December 2023. These are designed, manufactured, and tested in Canada at Alstom’s facilities in Kingston, ON, La Pocatière and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, QC. With 4,600 highly-skilled Canadian employees, Alstom is the only global rail mobility manufacturer to have production facilities in the country.
