March 3 (Reuters) - Canadian plane and train maker Bombardier Inc said on Friday it had signed a deal to deliver 70 trams to Zurich’s public transport authority at a base price of about 300 million Swiss francs ($297.06 million).
The contract includes an option for Zurich to buy 70 more of Bombardier’s Flexity-branded trams, the company said.
The first vehicles will be delivered at the end of 2019.
