BART wins approval to put first Fleet of the Future train into service
We've been given the go ahead to put our new Fleet of the Future cars into service. That approval came from the California Public Utilities Commission Wednesday night after a comprehensive testing process. You can expect to see the first train in service as early as Friday afternoon. This is exciting news for BART and our riders as it allows us to move forward with replacing the oldest big-city fleet in the nation. The new cars will offer BART passengers a quieter and more comfortable ride while expanding our capacity. Perhaps you'll be one of the lucky ones to ride it. What a surprise it will be when it pulls up at the platform!
The first Fleet of the Future train is just the beginning for BART's plans to improve the rider experience. Learn more about the Fleet of the Future.
