Rail Services

SNC-Lavalin specializes in the efficient, cost-effective delivery of rail-based rapid transit projects, particularly light rail, conventional heavy rail and advanced automated systems.

SNC-Lavalin is an independent transit developer, not aligned with any component manufacturer or supplier. This autonomy leaves it free to work with owner-preferred service and equipment providers, procure equipment from multiple sources and secure competitive pricing and financing.

SNC-Lavalin has worldwide experience in developing rail transit systems, and an established international network of permanent offices, allowing for both local knowledge and global scope. It can provide integrated service delivery for all phases of a project, including civil infrastructure, electrical systems, mechanical systems and other project elements. SNC-Lavalin's success also stems from its standards of excellence for safety, customer service, staff training and work processes that incorporate quality on all levels.
