Bombardier sells New York a bunch of lemons: 298 faulty subway cars pulled


Canada's perennial welfare queen Bombardier sold New York City's transit authority a bunch of lemons!

Bombardier was already under fire by the New York City Comptroller's office for delivering the new cars late.

The city has pulled all 298 of the newly delivered subway cars produced by the manufacturer amid concerns over safety and the “reliable operation” of the cars.

New York City Transit (NYCT) CEO Andy Byford previously clashed with Bombardier's products as the former head of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). Last year, the TTC had to send back dozens of Bombardier streetcars to be repaired due to welding issues.
