SPECIFICATIONS

 

Kawasaki has delivered 107 Bi-level commuter coaches to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority since 1991.

 

Bi-level coaches, which provide more seating capacity and comfort without changing the length of entire train, are put into service as a solution to overcrowded commuter lines. There are two models: CTC (Control Trailer Coach) which has the driver's cab on one end, and BTC (Blind Trailer Coach) which has no drivers cab. Passenger seating capacities for each model are 175 and 185 for CTC and BTC respectively. Fixed cross seats are arranged with a table between the center seats to allow commuters to work en-route. These cars employ air suspension systems that provide superior ride quality and comfort for the commuters.
