Rohr Rail and Industrial Systems Group
Rail Transit



In the early 1970s the San Francisco Bay Area Transit (BART) rapid transit cars were built at Rohr Chula Vista.

In November of 1974, the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) initiated a lawsuit against Rohr and seven other companies. Rohr denied any wrongdoing (Rohr, 1975, p. 3).
 
"During FY 1975 completed production of 450 rail transit cars for the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District." Rohr built "300 rail transit cars for the Washington (D.C.) Metropolitan Area Transit Authority." It "started production of seven turbin-powered trains for the National Railway Passenger Corporation (Amtrak)" (Rohr, 1975).

In June of 1975, Rohr management decided to discontinue the passenger rail car refurbishing Amtrak Rail Systems, Inc. in Mira Loma, California deeming it "marginal and non-essential" (Rohr, 1975, p. 1, 3).

"During 1976, Rohr delivered seven turbine-powered trains for the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Rohr Employees' Federal Credit Union, November 1977).

In 1977, the "Rohr-built people mover went into service" at "Honolulu's Pearlridge Shopping Center (Rohr Employees' Federal Credit Union, 1977).
