MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Siemens Canada Limited is pleased to
announce the winner of the Ride the Combino Plus! contest is Lesley Helwig,
25, of Toronto.
As the grand prize winner, Ms. Helwig will receive return airfare for two
to Lisbon, Portugal and two passes for unlimited travel along the Metro
Transportes do Sul S.A. (MTS) light rail transit line served by 24 Siemens
manufactured, 100 per cent low floor Combino Plus vehicles, as well and four
nights accommodation and $250 (CDN) spending money.
Helwig entered the contest after seeing an ad in the Metro newspaper in

Transit Commission (TTC). Last summer Siemens launched a city wide campaign
with ads in commuter dailies and provided a model of the Combino Plus at the
Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) as part of the TTC's Streetcars of Tomorrow
"We wanted to offer a chance for a resident of Toronto to experience
firsthand the smooth, comfortable ride offered on board the Combino Plus,"
says Mario Péloquin, Director Business Development for Siemens Canada Limited,
Transportation Systems. "The Combino Plus is safe, reliable and attractive,
and truly our next generation's mass transit vehicle - a perfect fit for
Toronto," concludes Péloquin.
