BART's First Train Car Arrives, and is Currently Undergoing Testing

Posted on April 6, 2016 at 12:50 PM

Two weeks ago, an oversize-load truck left snowy Philadelphia and headed west with BART's very first Fleet of the Future train car.

The car arrived in Hayward, California and was immediately shoved onto the test tracks. Over the course of this year, more cars will start rolling in, and each car will be vigorously tested.

BART should have its entire new fleet delivered by 2018 or 19, with 775 new cars, a considerable margin compared to BART's current fleet of 669 cars. BART hopes to eventually order 1,081 cars if funding permits.
