Electric trains can accelerate and decelerate faster and easier than previous models, meaning the trains can provide faster and more frequent service.
Faster and more frequent service means that the trains will provide an additional 30% capacity for riders.
Electric trains produce significantly less noise than diesel engines, meaning a quieter, more comfortable experience for riders.
Riders can breathe easy knowing the electric trains will produce substantially less corridor air pollution compared with diesel trains.
