New BART Railcar En Route Cross Country

The first railcar of the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District’s (BART) Fleet of the Future has completed its testing and is making its way across the country on a flatbed truck, taking a 3,600-mile trip from the Bombardier Transit Corporation manufacturing plant in Plattsburgh, NY, to a BART testing facility in Hayward, CA. This first test car will be followed by nine others throughout the year to make BART’s first new 10-car test train. After testing, the new car is scheduled to enter passenger service in December.
