A Japanese transit car manufacturer has a $200 million contract for production and overhaul of transit cars in the the U.S. Port Authority Trans Hudson has contracted with Kawasaki Heavy Industries to manufacture new transit cars at its new plant at Yonkers, N.Y., and then to overhaul the entire fleet of 248 cars which PATH already operates in its New Jersey--New York City transit services. The overhaul will be conducted in Brooklyn, N.Y. PATH is a subsidiary of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey; Pennsylvania decided to use its large procurement to further economic development of the New York/New Jersey metropolitan region. Kawasaki had already supplied 266 new Japan-built cars for Philadelphia and 325 transit cars for the New York City Transit Authority. NYCTA is getting 825 more of the same type cars for Bombardier of Canada as a licensee of Kawasaki. New PATH cars will be built in an industrial park where 150 permanent jobs will be established. Pennsylvania now looks at this development as an innovative instrument of regional economic expansion.
