The MBTA will overhaul the commuter rail with the hope of decreasing car commuters by 2040.

They're part of an all-new, 252-car fleet that will replace the aging cars currently running on the Red Line.

The first six cars arrived at the MBTA's Cabot Yard facility this fall. The T says they have more spacious interiors, wider doors, more handrails, two more accessibility seats in each car than current ones, and more modernized audio and visiual communication systems.
