CNI 076: 8-Car Train Power Upgrades Total
Power System Upgrades – Rail ($25.3 Million)
To meet increasing ridership de- mand and avoid overcrowding, Metro is moving from a combina- tion of 6- and 8-car trains to 100% 8-car trains at peak periods. This requires additional investment in the electrical system that powers the trains. This project includes improvements to the traction- power system to support 8-car trains. This includes upgrades to traction power equipment and cables to reduce the risk of power outages and/or fire. Metro’s Power System Upgrades – Rail program totals $25.3 million over the next 10 years.
