WASHINGTON—Representatives from the New York City Department of Transportation confirmed Tuesday that they have awarded a $4 million construction contract to the company responsible for laying the new subway cars. “The $4 million contract was awarded to New York City Transit for the installation and operation of the new subway cars, which will be installed and fully operational by the end of 2014,” said MTA chairman Thomas P. DeGaulle, adding that the contract was awarded to the firm that the city’s two subway cars will be driven to and from the L train station. “These new cars will be all-new, high-tech trains, capable of running on all existing subway lines, and will be operated by a highly trained, highly skilled workforce of MTA employees who are dedicated to performing all of the necessary maintenance work, including the installation of the new subway cars.” DeGaulle indicated that the contract would be the city’s largest achievement in the past five years, surpassing the $2 million contract for the subway cars that were laid in 2007.
