New Muni Trains

Project Overview

New Muni train in rail yard.

New Muni Metro trains will start service in 2017. The new cars will have more reliable passenger doors, better visibility from the operator cab, and an enhanced braking system. They’ll also require less maintenance so that we can dedicate more time to providing quality service.

The first new train arrived in January 2017 and is being tested. It's expected to start service in late summer 2017.

With over 200 new trains that will arrive in phases over about 10 years, Muni will replace its fleet of 151 light rail vehicles and expand it by 64.

The interior and exterior features were designed with input on public preferences. Thank you to all our customers and partners for participating in this exciting project.

Project Details

New Muni Metro trains will start service in 2017. The new trains, manufactured by Siemens, will have more reliable doors and steps, better visibility for operators and an enhanced braking system. They’ll also require less maintenance so that we can dedicate more time to providing quality service. 

The first new train arrived in January 2017 and is being tested. It's expected to start service in late summer 2017. 

With about new trains that will arrive in phases over roughly 10 years, Muni will replace its fleet of 151 light rail vehicles and expand it by 64.

The interior and exterior features were designed with input on public preferences. Thank you to all our customers and partners for participating in this exciting project.  

The procurement of these new trains is part of the largest modernization of Muni since the Metro’s opening in the early 1980’s. To ensure that we design the new cars to meet our customers' preferences, staff conducted public outreach to gather input and feedback for public preferences for the exterior design and interior layout.
