UPDATE 1-Bombardier gets C$770 mln Toronto streetcar order

* Says Metrolinx has ordered an additional 182 streetcars

* Says deliveries to occur between 2013 and 2020

TORONTO, June 14 (Reuters) - Canada’s Bombardier (BBDb.TO) said on Monday that Toronto region transit authority Metrolinx has ordered an additional 182 streetcars worth about C$770 million ($748 million) for use in the city of Toronto.

Last year, the Toronto Transit Commission signed a deal to buy 204 streetcars worth C$851 million, to replace its aging fleet. At the time, the agreement included an option to buy an additional 400 vehicles.

Montreal-based Bombardier said delivery of the new order of streetcars is scheduled to take place between 2013 and 2020. The new agreement also includes an option for an additional order of up to 118 vehicles at a later date.

The company said final assembly of the new vehicles for Toronto will take place at its production facility in Thunder Bay, Ontario. ($1=$1.026 Canadian) (Reporting by Euan Rocha; editing by Peter Galloway)
