Safety Enhanced Cars To Be Added To Metrolink System In 2011

mikeantonovichTwenty additional safety-enhanced cars will be added to the Metrolink system next year, thanks to action by County Supervisor and MTA Director Michael D. Antonovich.

The MTA Board approved Antonovich’s motion, co-authored by Directors Knabe, Najarian, Katz and Villaraigosa, to exercise an option increasing the number of safety-enhanced cars to 137 in a rail car order Metrolink placed with manufacturer Hyundai Rotem.

“Exercising the option gives Metrolink the opportunity to provide new safer cars rather than rehabilitating older cars currently in service,” said Antonovich.

Outfitted with vital passenger safety improvements including “crush zone” technology and “crash energy management” design estimated by the Federal Railroad Administration to reduce fatalities by 75 percent in a 35 mile per hour crash, the new rail cars will be delivered and put into service beginning in 2011.
