This project will continue the purchase of new M-9 electric cars, which was initiated in the 2010 – 2014 Capital Program. This continued fleet purchase will allow for the replacement of the LIRR’s remaining M-3 electric fleet (88 cars), which faces a number of service reliability challenges and dated system technology. In addition, a key system improvement component is the procurement of up to 76 new M-9 cars which will prepare the LIRR for future service to Grand Central Terminal, by expanding the size of the LIRR electric fleet. This procurement is being coordinated with cars purchased under the East Side Access project.
