New Red and Orange Line Cars: The MBTA requested bids for 152 new #14 Orange Line cars and 74 #4 Red Line cars with an option to purchase 58 additional Red Line cars. Bids were received 05/15/2014. Both groups of cars will be stainless-steel cars, configured as A-car/B-car married pairs; the A car will have a control cab at one end while the B-car will have no cabs. The Orange Line cars will replace the entire existing Orange Line fleet while the initial group of Red Line cars will replace the #1 car fleet, and the option order will replace the #2 car fleet. Final assembly in Massachusetts is required. The MBTA reported receiving six proposals. Proposals were received from CNR-Changchun Railway Vehicles, CSR, Rotem, CAF, Kawasaki, and Bombardier (Springfield MA media incorrectly reported that Alstom also submitted a proposal). CAF proposal was non-responsive because it did not meet performance guarantee requirement. CSR proposal was later dismissed because it did not meet the technical requirements. Final evaluation was between CNR, Rotem, Kawasaki, and Bombardier.

Update: On 10/22/2014, the MBTA Board of Directors approved a $566 million contract with CNR MA, a joint venture of China CNR Corp and CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles, to build 152 Orange Line cars and 132 Red Line cars. Initial Orange Line cars would be delivered in 2018, Red Line cars in 2019, with full order completed by 2023. The cars will feature Mitsubishi Electric propulsion equipment.

Type 7 3600 series overhaul program is expected to start in 2012 pending funding. In February 2008, the MBTA awarded an engineering service contract to Booz, Allen, and Hamilton to help evaluate if a mid-life program should be performed in-house or contracted out, and to help develop specifications if it is contracted out. The MBTA has requested bids for a contracted overhaul program. Proposals were received 03/15/2011 and are being evaluated.

Base contract would be for 86 3600-series cars, with options to overhaul 20 additional 3700s and 3600-series cars with repairable carbody damage for 106 cars total.

 

Update: On June 6, 2012, the MBTA Board of Directors approved a $104 million contract with Alstom Transportation of Hornell NY for the overhaul of 86 3600 Type 7s with an option to overhaul 20 additional cars (primarily the 18-19 repairable 3700s). Cars requiring major body work will not be included in the first 86 cars, but 1-2 may be included later as part of the 20-car option. Alstom will have up to a year to complete a pilot car; production line will eventually increase to 10 cars at a time out of service for the overhaul program. The entire program is expected to take four years to complete. First pilot car is expected back in October 2014. Cars will begin to return at a rate for four per month in early 2015.

 

New Cars:

MBTA requested offers for competitive negotiation procurement for 24 Type 9 cars. Base order will provide enough equipment by October 2015 for the increased vehicle requirement of the Green Line Somerville extension. Two proposals were received in May 27, 2011. The proposal includes options for up to 30 additional cars (54 total). The Type 9 will be configured like a Type 8: A 72-foot long, 70% low-floor car. Major differences will be sliding plug doors in place of folding doors and inboard bearing motor trucks. The proposed car must be mechanically compatible with the Type 7 and the Type 8. The MBTA now expects to award a contract at May 2014 Board of Directors meeting.

Update: On May 14, 2014, The MBTA Board of Directors approved a $118 million contract with CAF for 24 Type 9s, for delivery in 2017-2019.

New Locomotives:

September 1, 2009: The MBTA has issued a new request for proposals to purchase 20 new locomotives with options to purchase up to an additional 20 locomotives. Proposals were submitted February 5, 2010. This replaces all recent previous locomotive procurement RFPs. As this is a negotiated procurement, it may take up to a year to choose a builder and award a contract.

Update: On July 14, 2010, the MBTA Board of Directors voted on a contract with MPI (Motive Power Inc) for 20 new HSP-46 locomotives for $114 million. These units will feature General Electric GEVO prime movers. The Motive Power proposal was chosen over a competing one from Vossloh Espana, which would have used an EMD 710 engine in their proposed unit. A pilot unit is expected by mid 2013 and regular production unit deliveries from MPI are expected to start in late 2013 and continue to late 2014.

 

Update: On July 11, 2012, the MBTA Board of Directors approved an option contract with MPI for 7 additional HSP-46 locomotives for $37.6 million to be delivered by December 2014.

 

Update 2013: On April 10, 2013, the MBTA Board of Directors approved another option contract with MPI for 13 additional HSP-46 locomotives for $70 million. This will increase the total order to 40 locomotives. Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) money is being used to fund the purchase of 10 of these option locomotives. The purchase is eligible to use CMAQ money, as the new locomotives will generate lower emissions than the locomotives being replaced. Documents used to justify the CMAQ funding indicate that GP40MCs will be replaced by these option locomotives.

Unit #2001 is expected in fall 2013 for tests and training. Production unit deliveries are planned to start in spring 2014 and continue to December 2014 at the rate of 3-4 units per month. The P&W will prepare units for service as a subcontractor to MPI

Update: #2001 arrived at P&W 10/09/2013 for initial set-up and arrived at BET on 10/24/2013 to begin training and testing.

Update: #2001 entered revenue service 04/16/2014

Update: Units to be replaced by the option order HSP-46s will now be a mixture of 15-20 GP40MCs and any 1050-1075 F40PH-2Cs requiring major repairs.

 

Delivery status as of 09/25/2014:

Accepted units: 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013

Units awaiting delivery: 2000, 2003, 2009, 2011, 2014-2039

Other Notes: Note: 904 built new as a GP18 by EMD, downgraded to GP9 specs (1750 HP) when rebuilt by Peaker Services Inc for SEMTA in 1981.

New Buses:

MBTA is considering ordering 40 New Flyer 40-foot hybrid XDE40 Xcelsior buses, which would be exercised from a Connecticut DOT purchase option.

Update: On May 14, 2014, the MBTA Board of Directors approved a $32 million contract with New Flyer for 40 XDE40 (40-foot, diesel-electric Xcelsior) buses, an option assigned from a Conn DOT procurement. Delivery will begin in fall 2014 and be complete by February 2015. Tentative numbering plan is 1400-1439

Update: On August 27, 2014, New Flyer announced that the MBTA has exercised additional options and increased the order to 60 buses (1400-1459). All buses will be delivered by the first quarter of 2015.

Update: Pilot bus 1400 arrived for training/testing 09/30/2014. Present plan, is for all 60 buses to be assigned to Charlestown garage.

 

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Test Bus: Later in 2015, MBTA will test a hydrogen fuel cell bus for six months, provided by the FTA. Bus will be a 40-foot El Dorado Axess with stainless-steel body powered by a Ballard fuel cell engine with BAE propulsion and Nuvera fuel cells.

 

Additional New Buses

The MBTA has requested bids for 325 additional 40-foot low-floor buses, consisting of 175 CNG buses and 150 hybrid buses. Bids are due 01/25/2015. These buses will replace the remaining RTS buses, the 6000-series New Flyers, and a large amount of the NABI fleet. Deliveries are anticipated to take place in 2016-2017 once a contract is awarded.

The proposed contract also includes options for 200 additional buses (100 hybrid and 100 CNG) that could be exercised for up to five years from the awarding of contract through 2020. Exercising this option would allow for replacement of any remaining NABI buses and most of the 40-foot Neoplan diesel fleet between 2018-2020..

This is a low-bid procurement; the lowest qualified bid which meets the specifications will be awarded the contract.

Chronology of Type 8 events

January 31, 1998-Pilot car 3800 was delivered; non-revenue tests began 03/02/98.

March 24, 1999-Type 8s enter revenue service on Riverside line.

November 21 1999-Type 8s removed from service because of poor braking performance, the active fleet consisted of 5 cars when the fleet was withdrawn

April 27, 2000-Type 8s returned to revenue service on Riverside, Commonwealth, and Beacon St. lines

July 12, 2000-Type 8s removed from service following several derailments on Riverside line, the active fleet consisted of 7 cars when the fleet was withdrawn.

April 26, 2001-Type 8s return to service on Commonwealth Ave line following track improvements.

August 20, 2001-Type 8s removed from service following three derailments (two in the subway, one on Commonwealth Ave.), the active fleet consisted of 17 cars when the fleet was withdrawn.

March 22, 2003-Type 8s return to service on Commonwealth Ave. following track improvements and changes to both wheel and track profiles.

May 31, 2003-Type 8s removed from service following derailment of 3846 at Hynes Convention Center station. Type 8s however returned to service the following Monday (06/02/03). Media reports indicated a washer, part of the stub-axle assembly on the center truck, was loose resulting in the wheel of the right #3 axle of 3846 leaving the rail. Type 8 fleet returned to service on 06/02/03 after inspections, and “only” two other cars were found to have the same problem. Later in the week by Friday 06/06/03 additional inspections took place and there were no Type 8s spotted in service on Friday 06/06/03 or Saturday 06/07/03. Cars were back in service on 06/08/03.

December 11, 2003-Revenue operation of Type 8s on Beacon St. resumed for first time since July 2000.

March-June 2004: No Type 8s were accepted during this period, accepting new cars for service resumed in June. No additional cars were delivered after March. Multiple reliability problems continued.

July/August 2004: Cars 3801, 3815, and 3817 were delivered. These were the first cars delivered since March 2004.

August 20, 2004-Type 8s began operating to North Station and began operating in revenue service for the first time on E Heath St.-Huntington Ave. service. Cars can now operate in regular service on all lines except D Riverside. Operation of Type 8s on D Riverside line will require the completion of additional track repair work. Cars can make non-revenue moves between Reservoir and Riverside carhouses.

August 22, 2004-Cars 3806 and 3841 derailed at Northeastern outbound. All trucks on both cars left the rail. The center truck of the lead car (3806) came onto the platform. Derailment occurred after only 2.5 days of Type 8 operation on Huntington Ave. line. The initial incident occurred just after 11:00 AM and the press reported one non life-threatening injury to a passenger. Rerailing effort lasted into the evening. Car 3841 derailed a second time at Park St. station while being towed to Reservoir carhouse for initial post-accident inspection and investigation. Cars were restricted to service on Commonwealth Ave. only after this derailment.

September 2004-Acceptance of cars stopped after 3864 entered service.

October 28, 2004-Car 3827 derailed at the turn-back beyond North Station under the Fleet Center.

December 12,2004-In a Boston Globe article, the MBTA announced that they were halting the contract with Breda because of poor car reliability and a lack of response from Breda to correct problems. No more cars were to be delivered beyond the 40 accepted cars, 5 unaccepted production cars, and the original two pilot cars. The MBTA will work directly with suppliers to modify 10 cars to improve reliability as part of a pilot program to modify and retain these 47 cars. The article suggested that if problems cannot be resolved with Breda, then the MBTA could be interested in negotiating a new contract with another builder, possibly Kinki-Sharyo, to buy enough additional new cars required to retire the Boeing fleet. It was not certain if the possible new order would be for a new low-floor design or for more Type 7s. Ordering Type 7s would require using wayside lift or ramp devices as the permanent, rather than interim, means of wheelchair access. The last Type 8 cars delivered were in August 2004, while no additional cars have been accepted since September 2004. The article also stated it was unclear if the Type 8s could ever run in revenue service on the Riverside line again because of the higher operating speeds and the possibility of derailments.

April 2005-Car 3869 was accepted, remaining unaccepted cars already on MBTA property are expected to be accepted.

October 2005: The number of cars to be modified has been increased from 10 to 20, later increased to 42.

Cars modified to improve reliability: 3802, 3803, 3804, 3805, 3806, 3808, 3809, 3810, 3811, 3812, 3813, 3814, 3816, 3819, 3820, 3821, 3822, 3823, 3824, 3825, 3827, 3834, 3840, 3841, 3846, 3847, 3854, 3855, 3857, 3858, 3859, 3861, 3862, 3863, 3864, 3866, 3867, 3868, 3869, 3870, 3875

November 2005: Car 3874 was delivered to the MBTA, the first new Type 8 delivered since August 2004. The MBTA has apparently reached a compromise agreement with Breda to accept a total of 85 Type 8s. The shells of the remaining 15 incomplete cars may also be acquired by the MBTA for parts. Regular deliveries and acceptance testing are expected to resume.

December 2005: The MBTA officially announced the agreement with Breda to accept a total fleet of 85 cars. Deliveries are expected to be completed by January 2007.

January 31. 2006: Type 8 operation on Beacon St. resumed.

December 30, 2006: Type 8 operation to Heath St. resumed for first time since brief operation in 2004, Type 8 service to Lechmere resumed for first time since 2000.

mid-2007: MBTA reached agreement to complete 10 out of the remaining 15 car shells. Total fleet to reach 95 with deliveries of the 10 cars starting in August 2007 and completed by January 2008. 5 shells to remain at Everett shops as spares to repair any future damaged cars. Parts of one shell used to repair 3807.

December 1, 2008: Type 8 revenue operation on the Riverside line resumed for the first time since July 2000.
