CTA has begun putting a brand new family of ‘L’ cars into service: The CTA 5000-series rail cars. These new rail cars include a wide variety of new features and technologies.
The cars are being built by Bombardier in their manufacturing facility in Plattsburg, N.Y.
The result of the advancements in these cars is a smoother, more comfortable ride, and cars that can operate more efficiently — providing benefits to both operational and maintenance efficiency.
More information on the cars can be found on the CTA's website HERE.
