My name is James Lawlor and I’m a regular user of the STM bus and metro services to travel between my home in NDG and work in St-Laurent. I also have a professional interest in trains and metros as an employee of Alstom and as an engineer.
My employer, Alstom transport is the 2nd largest manufacturer of transit equipment in the world (after Bombardier).
I work in the bids and tenders at our site in St-Laurent. We are responsible for the preparation of proposals for the communication systems for all the tenders that Alstom participates in around the world.
The electronic displays you see in the Montreal metro cars (Alstom Telecite) was the result of the first project that our site did. Since then, our products are now found on five continents.
