Metrorail gets new trains

October 12, 2019


Janine: MIAMI’S METRO RAIL SYSTEM HAS TRANSPORTED HUBS OF THOUSANDS OF PASSENGER SINCE IT FIRST WENT INTO OPERATION IN 1984. Calvin: AND THOSE SAME TRAIN CARS ARE STILL IN USE TODAY BUT NOT FOR MUCH LONGER. LOCAL10’S CARLOS SUAREZ SHOWS US HOW METRO RAIL IS MOVING INTO THE FUTURE. [ APPLAUSE ] Carlos: UNDER THE VEILING ATTRACTED AN INTERNATIONAL CROWD. OUR CAMERAS GOT AN EARLY LOOK AT HOW THE NEW FLEET OF METRO RAIL CARS WILL LOOK ONCE THE COUNTY TAKES DELIVERY THEM IN 2017. THE SLEEK DESIGN COUPLED WITH CUSTOMIZED TECHNOLOGY IS SURE TO CHANGE THE RIDING EXPERIENCE. WE’RE REALLY HAPPY ABOUT IT. THE NEW DESIGN, THE NEW COLORS. IT’S BRIGHT. IT’S THE FUTURE. AND SO I THINK IT ALSO HAS ENHANCED COMFORT FEATURES FOR OUR RIDERS. Carlos: THE COUNTY ASK SPEND BE CLOSE TING $366 MILLION FOR THE RAIL CARS BUILT BY GIANT HITACHI RAIL. THE COMPANY WILL ASSEMBLE THE NEW FLEET IN PLED SAY THE SPRAWLING 140,000 SQUARE FOOT STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITY. THE ASSEMBLY WORK IS EXPECTED TO CREATE 100 NEW JOBS. DID MARKET IN THE USA ASKED US TO HAVE A FACILITY, AND IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE YOU REDUCE THE COST TO ASSEMBLE HERE, AND ALSO YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE JOBS, AND THAT FOR ME IS A VERY IMPORTANT VALUE. Carlos: THE COUNTY ASK USING A HALF PENNY TAX TO UPDATE THE DATED FLEET OF METRO RAIL CARS THAT WENT INTO SERVICE IN 1984. THE NEW CARS WILL FEATURE A VARIETY OF AMENITIES INCLUDING WI-FI, TV AND LED LIGHTS AND BIKE RACKS. THIS INVESTMENT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US, AND I THINK SUCH KIND OF NEW FACILITY AND NEW TRAINS WILL ATTRACT SOME MORE INVESTMENT. THAT WOULD BE A VERY BIG OPPORTUNITY, GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR US. Carlos: THE NEW FLEET OF CARS IS SURE TO TURN HEADS BUT THERE ARE MORE SERIOUS ISSUES FACE 10 DECADES OLD RAIL LINE INFRASTRUCTURE. HAD I TEACH HOPES TO REMEDY SOME OF THOSE PROBLEMS WITH SOME OF THE TECHNOLOGY INSIDE THE CARS. SENSORS WILL BE ABLE TO TELL IF SOMETHING IS WRONG ON THE TRACK
