Maintenance of the Class 378 fleet will take place at four separate locations in and around London.

Bombardier Transportation managing director Richard Hunter said: “This contract change demonstrates TfL’s continued confidence in Bombardier’s delivery of high-quality fleet maintenance services.

“We were able to show improved value for money, and through collaborative work with the customer, reduced service locations and extended maintenance intervals.”
