Like the current Breda LRV's, they have steps that can be adjusted. Also, most if not all of the street level stops have a high level section for accessibility.

It appears that the new LRV will debut on the Hillway Shuttle (an N Judah short turn that only runs as far as Carl & Hillway, in order to mop up passengers in Cole Valley and on Duboce during long headways). The N Judah was promised the first new train (originally supposed to be a three-car set), and the Hillway Shuttle is the only N service that runs with single cars.
