  • Fleet of the Future
    Updated On: Sep 01, 2014
    BART began service over 40 years ago.  The original BART cars are near the end of their useful lives and need to be replaced.  

    Bombardier Transit Corporation will build BART's Fleet of the Future.  A complex supply chain and assembly process, followed by rigorous testing, will result in the first new train cars going into service in 2017.

    Nearly 35,000 customers participated in outreach events during the design phase.  Based on their input, the new cars will be:

    •     Quieter:  "micro-plug" doors will help seal out nois
    • Cooler:  cooling systems will distribute air directly to the ceilings, making it more comfortable for standees on hot days
    •     Comfortable:  padded seats will be covered with wipeable fabric for ease of cleaning
    • Easy to use:  routes will be color coded like the BART system map, and next stop information will be readily available via automated announcements and digital screens.

    BART's goal is to order 1,000 new train cars, increasing the number of seats in the fleet by 38%.
