NYC Subway Gets A Modern Design Update
The city announced changes to trains and stations, including open-passageway cars with Wi-Fi and USB connectivity
Finally, New York City subway trains and stations are getting a major design overhaul. The MTA plans to add up to 1,025 new subway cars to its fleet, including 750 open-gangway cars. Open-gangway trains allow free passage from one end of the train to the other. It’s a design staple in other major cities, such as London and Toronto, and should increase the capacity of crowded trains.
