Metro seeking input on how to design 8000 series cars

Postby davinp » Tue Dec 05, 2017 11:46 am

Should seats in Metro's new cars continue to face forward and back, or from the sides to leave more open space? You may have the chance to weigh in on this and other design elements for Metro's next generation of railcars, dubbed the 8000 series.

The 8000-series would build on the design of the 7000s, but likely with a few more tweaks and features. Order and delivery of these trains is still a long way off, and it's likely to be 2025 or later before passengers would be riding them. ... n-railcars
