The Bombardier Innovia APM 300 (C801B) is a rubber-tyred automated people mover (APM) train to operate on the Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT). Slated to enter service around 2020, these will be the Bukit Panjang LRT Line’s third generation of rolling stock, and will be capable of operating in single and double car formations.
Nineteen traincars were procured by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in March 2018.
Contract 801B (C801B) for the Asset Replacement and Reliability Enhancement Works for Bukit Panjang Light Rapid Transit was awarded to Bombardier (Singapore) Pte Ltd on 7 March 2018. As part of the Contract, 19 single-car trains were procured, to replace the 19 C801 Trains which entered service in November 1999.
The trains will be built as part of Bombardier’s INNOVIA family of APM trains. They are guided by a central guideway and draw power from a power rail embedded within the guideway. The C801B Trains will be operating on Bombardier Transportation’s CITYFLO 650 system, which consists of a Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling system.
Trains can be formed of either one car, or two cars coupled together. Every car is identified by a three digit number, to be confirmed. All sets were built by Bombardier Transportation.
