ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland Board of Public Works is scheduled to take up a $205 million contract with a Canadian-based company to run two MARC commuter train lines.
The board, which is scheduled to vote on the contract at its Wednesday meeting, is looking to award the nearly six-year contract to Bombardier Transportation Services to run the Camden and Brunswick lines. The company also produced the lowest bid.
Keolis Rail Services America, a majority of which is owned by the French railroad SNCF, had bid on the contract as well. It is based in Rockville.
The French railroad has been criticized by Holocaust survivors for failing to fully disclose records relating to its role in transporting victims during World War II.
