BOSTON — The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has signed a contract with China Railroad Rolling Stock Corp. to supply 134 additional metro cars for its Red Line.

In December 2016, MBTAs fiscal and management control board approved a base order for 120 cars with an option for an additional 14 cars. This is on top of a $566-million contract awarded to CRRC in late 2014 to build 284 Red and Orange line cars: 152 cars for the Orange Line and 132 cars for the Red Line.

All 418 cars will be assembled at a plant that CRRC is building in Springfield, Mass. Completion of this facility is expected in September, with manufacturing to begin in April 2018. Deliveries of the cars will continue into 2023.
