MBTA begins operating new bi-level passenger cars

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) recently added 19 bi-level coach cars to its system to replace single-level coaches.

To be operated on the Worcester/Framingham commuter-rail line, the bi-level cars provide seating for 180 passengers. MBTA will transfer the single-level coaches to other lines and use them to extend train lengths.

Between January and March, the authority will add another 14 bi-level coaches to the system.
