RAPID TRANSIT 

In 2002, MTA New York City Transit (NYCT) awarded the largest passenger rail transit contract in the U.S. for the supply of up to 1,700 R160 subway cars. Kawasaki had the pleasure of delivering 660 R160B cars

 

The R160 cars have expanded on the proven design of its predecessor, the R142A and R143 subway cars. These enhancements utilize state-of-the-art technologies and improve passenger comfort. Kawasaki subway cars are designed with quality and reliability in mind, which contributes to their low cost of ownership and maintenance.
